The Honeymoon Continues: Best Coast Strike Again With “Far Away”


Get it from Stereogum. It has not escaped notice that Bethany Consantino’s output a) all pretty much sounds the same and b) can, when slathered in enough reverb, make her sound not unlike a pre-NPR-coronation Neko Case. No one is mad at either of those things — let us revel in Best Coast’s ongoing honeymoon period, wherein she can release a song rhyming “bad” with “sad” and you’ll love it anyway. The physical seven-inch is available alongside some bitchin’ headphones; quoth the snarkier of our interns: “This pairing is just ironic. High-quality headphones in order to listen to some Best Coast.”
