CD REVIEW: Best Coast "Crazy For You"

Crazy For You
They say "the west coast is the best coast" but in this group's case, Best Coast is the west coast. The entire album is light and airy indie rock music that transports you right to the coast of California. It's old school indie vibe is incredibly similar to the work of She & Him, but the music seems to me much more gritty and less poppy. At times the vibes of 50's era pop shine through the music and in other places on the album you can hear elements that remind you of no one else. "Boyfriend" could be Summer 2010's best song. The title track and "Summer Mood" are also two of the album's best tracks. Best Coast is truly great new band that is making music that is unmatched in its special blend of uniqueness and excellence.
