Editors’ Notes

After a number of singles and EPs, California’s Best Coast finally released their anticipated full-length debut, appropriately — we might add — in the middle of summer. Beth Cosentino’s voice, swathed in reverb, sounds like sunshine, and her washes of hazy power chords cascade and glisten like water in freefall. Band mate Bobb Bruno (also a solo performer and producer) helps shape the songs with additional guitar, bass and drums (Ali Koehler from Vivian Girls has since joined the band). These rich, purely pop tunes evoke not only surf rock of the ‘60s, but girl groups and doo-wop of the late ‘50s. The naked wistfulness of tracks like “Boyfriend” and “Crazy for You,” the classic surf licks on songs like “When I’m With You,” and the naïve, retro-styled lyrics throughout (“mama always told me there’d be boys like you,” “I want you so much”) all ring with instant familiarity, and this purist vintage approach works. It’s the unabashed co-opting of pop music from a simpler time that makes Crazy for You so appealing.

"I had interest from major labels," she said in a 2009 interview with PopSense. "And it was...
