Who would have thought the dramatic split of Bethany Cosentino and Amanda Brown would produce such beautiful and delectable results. While Brown still scratches away with indie favorites Pocahaunted, Cosentino put together arguably one of the most exciting acts for 2010. If you haven’t heard of Best Coast yet, you either haven’t been reading this site enough or you’re just not interested in finding exciting music.
Whatever the case, you can fix this. The California grunge poppers are about to hit the road, and if you happen to live in (or near) America’s most prevalent cultural meccas — err, cities — then you’ll probably have a chance to see ’em. If you’re still wondering what the hell is a Best Coast and who the fuck is Bethany Cosentino, hit up the group’s MySpace page, listen to the very Hole-meets-Beach House single, “When I’m With You”, and become a fan now.
Aye aye aye, the kids these days!
