7″ Review: Something In The Way

Band: Best Coast
Release: 2/2010
Label: PPM (Dean Spunt’s Label!)

1. “Something In The Way” – A
2. “Wish He Was You” – A
3. “The Road” – A

Comment: Sure, the lo-fidelity can get to your ears and concentration, but that’s only if you let it. “Something” starts with a rad drum beat and a catchy Dum Dum meets Vivian Girls chorus. The comparison isn’t too unfounded because all three bands have similar production and sound aesthetics. My first and ending impression is that this is great! It’s not something I’m going to listen to continuously, but it will never disappoint or get boring. Surely, Best Coast is a band to keep an eye on.

Grade: A (94)
