In one week (6 days to be exact) more than 1,800 bands from all over the world will converge on Austin, Texas from March 17-21 for the South by Southwest Music Festival! Sadly, MizMuze can’t leave her day job to attend this year’s SXSW…but, we can all be there in spirit as MizMuze will be featuring a must-see SXSW band for the SOTD for the next two weeks.
Today’s band, Best Coast are a duo from LA fronted by Bethany Cosentino who brings her breathy, muffled, lo-fi 60’s garage rock/surf pop sound to the SXSW scene. Bethany describes Best Coast best as “songs about summer and the sun and the ocean and being a lazy creep with drums, beach boys’ bass lines, and other amazing things.”
