Fonda: Sell Your MemoriesFonda: Sell Your Memories (Minty Fresh, 2/5/13)

With an infectious wall of sound blasting at the listener, LA’s Fonda writes break-up music you can drive to.

Taking cues from the 1960s and alternative rock with a dream-pop twist, Sell Your Memories, the first full-length in eight years from the reactivated duo of Emily Cook and David Klotz, promises to be a midwinter solar flare.

“You’ve Got a Life of Your Own” is a preview of that, courtesy of Minty Fresh — a label that well knows the style. Cook’s vocals filter through a heady layer of reverb, with charmingly unsubtle references to sunshine emphasizing the fight between moods.
