CONTEST – Best Coast @ The Garrison – April 13, 2010

Photo via Last.FMLast.fmThe latest in the string of lo-fidelity heroes is Bethany Cosentino, who plies her languid, fuzz-laden trade under the guise of Best Coast. Along with her partner in crime Bobb Bruno, she sings simple, catchy throwback tunes about boys that are more suited to buzzing out of a transistor radio – perhaps resting on a beach blanket – than computer speakers though given the internet buzz surrounding the project the last few months, that’s probably where the songs are mostly being heard. Good thing those generally sound pretty crap as well.

Their official output currently consists only of a couple of 7″s but an album is being prepped for a late Summer/early Fall release and the band are testing out the new material on the road, including a date at The Garrison in Toronto on Tuesday, April 13. Tickets are $10 in advance but courtesy of Collective Concerts I’ve got a pair of passes to give away for the show. To enter, email me at contests AT with “I want to live on the Best Coast” in the subject line and your full name in the body – contest closes at midnight, April 11th.

There’s a couple interviews with Cosentino at Spinner, and also pieces at The Breeze and eye.
