PRACTICAL RECORDS RELEASES ANNA LUISA'S GREEN.
Anna Luisa soars in utopic hyperspace with interstellar synthscapes and optimistic songwriting in her debut solo album “Green,” an ambitious suite of shimmering summer-ready tracks that emphasize her craft as a healer, producer, and empathic collaborator.
“Green” invites listeners to Luisa’s “green place”—a new age refuge of lush landscapes and verdant soil, an oasis of collaborators and friends in the Los Angeles desert, where she lives and works. “I imagine us all chilling in a rich green ambiance of plants, herbs, birds, lizards… a conjured space to provide a mental and spiritual break from reality,” said Luisa.

About Practical Records:
Practical Records is an independent cassette label. Our mission is to cultivate community and exposure for emergent queer artists from the Bay Area & Los Angeles.
Since 2014, we have released an extensive catalog of music and zines. In addition, we produce concerts and DIY workshops that provide opportunities to interact with Practical Records artists.
Practical Records embraces physical media through playfully-designed and lovingly-packaged products available in limited editions. We like to use materials that invite introspection and a closer relationship to our artists and the music they produce.
We have presented events in venues like Zebulon, Los Angeles; PAM, Los Angeles; Trans-Pecos, New York; and ATA, San Francisco. Congregation, celebration, and queer communion are at the core of Practical Records’ philosophy, in an attempt to subvert Internet domination.
