Music Monday 7.19.10 Best Coast



When I first heard Best Coast I hated them. But then one day I heard the song Something In The Way in a new way, and I was changed forever. Now, I’m at the point where I can’t get enough, and thankfully this past week I got their new album, Crazy For You, and I’m crazy for it. It’s warm and fuzzy and she’s got that perfect voice. All the songs are about falling in love, or already being there, and it’s to me, the perfect sound of summer 2010. I give this a strong approval and recommendation.

Other things to take note of is that for the first time in the 4 years I was aware of them and on and off listening, I finally understood Woods and really enjoyed listening to them. I don’t know what clicked, but something did. I was cleaning my old bookshelves while listening to this, and it was really late at night, and the music added something to that.

I also realized that Pedro The Lion’s Achilles Heel is my favorite thing David Bazan has done.

I also listened to The Books new album, which classic Books, but I like that. If you like there other stuff, this won’t disappoint.

  1. How do you stack Bethany’s voice up against Zooey Deschanel? They both have that pseudo retro thing going on, but I actually think She & Him pulls off a lot of good love songs just as well as these guys.

    • I prefer Bethany’s voice all the way. I got a little tired of She & Him, I love M. Ward, but Zooey wore off on me.
      I actually think Bethany sounds a little like Neko Case, and that, I can get into.
