Best Coast

Summer love is in the air. California-based Best Coast will kick off their upcoming headlining national tour this week in Toronto, supporting their debut, Crazy For You. Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno, aka Best Coast, will release their 12-track album of romantic, fuzzed-out tunes on July 27th.

If you can’t wait, the album is now available for pre-order with special limited edition fun BC products at mexicansummer.com/bestcoastpreorder, offering unique options like “The Snacks Super Bundle” where you can receive Crazy For You limited colored vinyl, tote bag, tee shirt, stickers, and an advanced stream of the entire album (available until July 13th).

The band’s debut album was recorded at Black Iris, a studio in LA’s Echo Park by Lewis Pesacov of the bands Fool’s Gold and Foreign Born. None of the songs on Crazy for You had been released on the earlier 7-inches. To amp up the album with a bevy of new ideas, Cosentino entered the studio with a set of demos she had never sent to Bruno. “I wanted the record to be something completely fresh and new,” says Cosentino. “I just felt like my first record needed to be really special.”
