Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino with a selection of tunes that shaped her vision of dreamy summer jams and fuzzy surf pop anthems.
Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno are as West Coast as West Coast can get. The pure bliss and slight oddness of their innocent, seemingly naive fuzz rock anthems are only two of many heavy weapons in the arsenal of Best Coast. Melding straight garage riffs and huge Beach Boys harmonies with lyrics that, in all their genius silliness, could have escaped right out of a Pynchon novel, their dreamy summer tunes will haunt you for weeks. In a good way, that is. The fact that all this comes with a healthy obsession for the Riot Grrrl movement, 70s pop, bags of weed, and cats and bears, just makes it all the more exciting. All effects aside – when they’re with you, you have fun. That’s what it all comes down to. Fresh coast for the win!
