The roots-music label Paradise Of Bachelors seems incapable of releasing anything that isn’t wrenchingly beautiful. Case in point: Itasca. Kayla Cohen, the Los Angeles singer/songwriter who records as Itasca, released an impressive album called Unmoored By The Wind two years ago. She’s now signed on with Paradise Of Bachelors and announced a new album called Open To Chance. The first single is a fluttery, precise, pastoral folk reverie called “Buddy,” and you can hear it below.
Open To Chance is out 9/30 on Paradise Of Bachelors.
