Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino and Wavves’ Nathan Williams celebrate their summer lovin’ with the Summer Is Forever EP. It opens with Wavves’ “King of the Beach,” a delightfully scuzzy guitar-pop summer hit with terminally contagious melodies, danceable drum beats and crunchy six-string distortion that clashes wonderfully with some classically twangy surf guitar. Best Coast follows with “Crazy for You,” a near-timeless slice of beach-blanket pop where Cosentino’s flirty inflections recall ‘60s girl groups while matching Wavves’ tones with gallons of wet reverb. Wavves counter with the warbling “Stained Glass (Won’t You Let Me Into Your Heart)” where Williams sings floating falsettos over a wonderfully weird blend of studio effects. Fans of old-school vinyl on the Slumberland Records roster will find a sweet familiarity with Best Coast’s “When You Wake Up.” The EP bookends with “Hawaii” by 2011 touring partners No Joy — it’s a perfect blend of 21st-century indie surf and early-‘90s shoegazing.
I've never heard of them before, because this really isn't my type of music to listen out for, but when I hear something that's good I listen. I listen to anything if it's good. This is good. Did I mention this was good? Oh!
Its neat to see wavves and best coast together considering they are pretty well related to each other. I haven't listened to too many songs by no joy but they seem all right even though I think they took up some of the space that could have been another wavves song but hey I have all their songs anyways and any exposure these bands get is good hope to hear a lot more from all of them!
Great Glo-FI Tunes!
