Another one that has taken me a while to actually write something about, but I figure better late than never. Garage-pop, dream-pop, blisswave, chillwave, whatever you want to call it, this sound has summer written all over it. Another up and rising artist, Bethany Cosentino, aka Best Coast, has quickly become one of indie-dom's most promising new acts.
In 2010, she's looking to make good on her success so far with an as-yet-untitled and label-less debut LP due out sometime this summer, though I believe she hasn't officially said when. Releasing a number of 7" and mp3 singles, she has created quite a bit of buzz around her name. For good reason. Her sound is fairly innovative as it's hazy chorus lines lull the listener into a friendly, warm buzz that embellishes you sit back relax and lay in the sun. It appears as though Bethany has a pretty good sense of humor judging by the Ronald McDonald cameo in her video for first real single, "When I'm With You". Best of luck to this happy couple. Look for Best Coast's debut LP later this summer.
