Here's the latest video from local artist L.A.T.I., who is our friend (or whatever you're supposed to call a mutual connection) on Twitter -- you can follow her at @Latimusica (and us at @Crossfade_SFL). It's for "Spaceship," the lead single off her debut album, due out next year. Born LaTisha Marie Cotto, this Mexican-American songstress grew up in Waco, Texas and Atlanta, where she began to hone her sound as a singer, songwriter, and lyricist. You can hear a tiny bit of that city's influence in the mechanical, low-end grind of this song's beat.
