El May by Amanda CharchianEl May is the artistic outlet of Lara Meyerratken –a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist who has worked with acts such as Nada Surf, Luna, Crooked Fingers, and Luscious Jackson. She claims her forthcoming second album, The Other Person is You (Rose Quartz Records), was created “after a string of romantic disappointments” and is filled with “love, loss, desire, and strength.” It’s also filled with many cameos that she likes to refer as a “bunch of friends that live around me in L.A.” which include Allison Pierce (of The Pierces), Koool G Murder (of The Eels), and Blake Hazard (of The Submarines).

El May will soon tour with The Rosebuds.
