Song of the Day – Monday 12/6/2010 Best Coast/Wavves December 6, 2010

So MizMuze started her Christmas shopping this weekend and that was super-fun…fighting for parking, crowded stores, bad attitudes.  Love the Holiday Spirit.  But Target is helping to get us through these stressful times with their Holiday Music Downloads.

On the track “Got Something for You” the indie power couple, girlfriend/boyfriend, Best Coast and Wavves sing about sneaking a peek at their X-Mas gifts—no doubt they’ll be kissing under the marijuana-toe and leaving Jolly Old St. Nick some milk and ganja cookies.

Best Coast and Wavves will co-headline at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco on 2/26/2011 (tix will be available soon)…

Song of the Day – Tuesday 9/7/2010 Bethany Cosentino, Kid Cudi, and Rostam Batmanglij September 7, 2010

It’s the day after Labor Day and you know what that means…it’s the symbolic end of Summer.  So put away your white pants and let’s listen to one last song to commemorate our favorite season…

Creating an exclusive track for Converse, Bethany Cosentino from Best Coast, Kid Cudi, and Rostam Batmanglij of Vampire Weekend sing an ode to waiting all year long for Summer.  So now that Summer’s over, you’re just now realizing how good you had it, how great Summer made you feel, and how much you took it for granted.  Now, of course, you want Summer back.  But don’t despair, you’ll get back together in 9 months, but until then, download “All Summer” here.

Song of the Day – Thursday 7/1/2010 Wavves July 1, 2010

San Diego noise punkers, Wavves is fronted by Nathan Williams aka Bethany Cosentino’s (frontwoman for Best Coast) boyfriend.  What an adorable little lo-fi, weed lovin’, surf rockin’ couple!   Speaking of Best Coast and boyfriends, Best Coast’s new single, “Boyfriend” can be downloaded here.

Wavves third album, King of the Beach is now available on iTunes and will hit music stores (are there any left?) on 8/3.

All you’ll need are some tasty Wavves, a cool buzz, and you’ll be fine when Wavves plays at the Rickshaw Stop on 8/18/10…tix go on sale tomorrow.

Song of the Day – Thursday 3/11/2010 Best Coast March 11, 2010

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.”
