Best Coast - Crazy for You

Best Coast is a Los Angeles indie trio that’s gotten all sorts of hype over the last year. After a series of singles, EPs, and videos, their debut LP Crazy For You came out in July.

The sound is pretty much a perfect storm of things that are hip these days: low-fi, echoing drone, chiming surf rock guitars, and sugary sweet, lovestruck vocals from frontwoman Bethany Cosentino (every indie kid’s latest crush).

It’s tough to pick a song off an album like this — it’s a mood-setter, one that’s great to play all the way through on a hazy summer day (or grey fall day in this case). I’m fond of this one, though: “The End.”
