Best Coast

I first became aware of this band about a year ago when I came across their video for their song “Our Deal”, from their Album Crazy For You. Founded and led by Bethany Cosentino, the band’s low-fi and obvious late 50’s and early 60’s style influence, sound is a great contrast to much of the so-called music to be found on the radio today. Their sophomore effort, The Only Place came out not that long ago and while the low-fi aspect isn’t there as much, that classic sound style along with  Bethany’s vocals that are smooth with a hint of an edge, and simple yet touching and elegant lyrics are still very much in place. One song that’s been on heavy rotation on my iTunes playlist is “Up All Night.” Loving this song. If you don’t know who they are and haven’t heard one note from Best Coast, I whole heartedly think you should give them a listen. Your ears will thank you for it.
