Best Coast & Johnny Marr – “In Your Sleep”
Betheny Cosentino’s in that rarified place where she’s both on elder rock champions radar and also in their Fave Five. (We’re still making “Fave Five” jokes, right? Great.) Rivers Cuomo nabbed her for duet and joined her Weezer cover, Mark Hoppus had her on his TV show, and now this: Smiths icon Johnny Marr has employed Beth in his song-for-cash campaign for Ray Ban, which will go well with her complimentary Chucks. He provided some reference points — photography, a map of the LES, a poem, etc. — and they made a song. He also got Au Revoir Simone and Tom Vek involved in this — you can hear all of their collaborations over at SPIN.
