best coast is a singer-songwriter out of l.a. equally influenced by ’50s doo-wop as she is modern diy, lo-fi. over the summer she released a dope cassette called “where the boys are” and then a 7” called “sun was high (so was i)”. find most of these tunes at her myspace. she has a new 7” single coming out in a week or so called “make you mine”. this stuff is candy. still waiting on someone to make a modern pop song as good as the drifters “there goes my baby“, maybe best coast will do it.
here’s a nice live acoustic version of “sun was high (so was i)”
