Upset – ’76 EP (Stereogum Premiere)

Stream Best Coast’s Valentine’s Day Playlist

Best Coast's songs are perfect for both those who are in love and those who are lovesick, so it makes sense that Bethany Cosentino would want to put together a Valentine's Day playlist to acknowledge some of her influences.

Photos: Burger A-Go-Go Fest 2014

This past weekend, Burger Records held a small festival called Burger A-Go-Go. That name implies a dance-filled occasion, but considering the goofy charm of the label, they're probably referring to Monster A-Go-Go, one of the most painfully stupid movies ever filmed. Judging from its lineup, though, which includes Dum Dum Girls, the Muffs, and… More »

TV Party: Best Coast Talk Seinfeld

The subway advertisements have caught your attention. You've noticed it listed over and over again on your digital cable box guide. You've seen the DVDs both in houses and left on stoops, just in case anyone wants to take them. Of course, you saw the Super Bowl thing. Now it's time… More »

Watch Some Teasers For Best Coast’s Newly Completed Third Album

Last year Best Coast released Fade Away, which at seven tracks was something like the group's third album but was dubbed a "mini-album." In an interview around that time, Bethany Cosentino said she was hoping to have Best Coast's real third album out by the spring. It's springtime now, and the album isn't… More »

Watch Best Coast’s Live, Binaural Session For Jawbone

Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino doesn't really strike me as the audiophile type, and yet she recently recorded a live-in-studio session for the speaker manufacturer Jawbone, showing off its binaural recording technique. Binaural recordings use two microphones to capture a sort of 3D sound, and though I can't quite hear the difference, maybe you can. Eve… More »

Watch Schoolboy Q And Best Coast In This Fake Hoverboard Commercial

Hoverboards! Who didn't want one after seeing Back To The Future Part II? Even I wanted one, and I'm terrified of heights and gave up attempting to skateboard after just one marginally nasty fall. Well, all of our dreams are about to come true. Hoverboards are finally here for real! More »

Hear Kim Shattuck And Ali Koehler Discuss Getting Fired From The Pixies And Best Coast On Jonah Raydio

Muffs leader Kim Shattuck was recently, unceremoniously, unapologetically dismissed from the Pixies, notified by the band's manager. Upset leader Ali Koehler was let go as the drummer of Best Coast in 2011, also notified by band management. Both fired bandmates appeared on Jonah Ray Rodrigues' Nerdist podcast Jonah Raydio last week and… More »

Best Coast – “This Lonely Morning” Video

Best Coast's video for "This Lonely Morning," a fuzzily sunny song from their new Fade Away EP, has all the song's lyrics printed onscreen, but it's not really a lyric video. And it debuted on Funny Or Die, but it's not remotely funny. Instead, it's a generally cute, low-budget music video. The clip follows Bethany… More »

Please Don’t Throw Cheeseburgers At Best Coast

In recent weeks we've heard about musician-versus-audience showdowns involving Fiona Apple and Neko Case that resulted in both singers erupting at their fans. Now let's add Best Coast to their number, although to be fair, this incident is a whole lot funnier and stranger. In an interview with Self-Titled (via Pitchfork),… More »

Best Coast – “I Don’t Know How” Video

Best Coast released their new Fade Away EP last week, prompting this Chris DeVille piece about the value of perfecting a single sound and staying in your lane.
