New Best Coast Song

Black Iris is streaming a new Best Coast song, “Our Deal,” from her forthcoming solo album. You can listen to it here.

I wish I had an arbitrary rating system that I used for this sort of thing, because I would happily give this “5 out of 5 cats” or rank it on par with “The OC season one” (versus, of course, later seasons of The OC.)

What I am trying to say here is: listen to this song. I have been for the last half hour. It’s a gorgeous, lazy, mournful pop song. I’m beginning to think that Best Coast writes those types of songs better than almost anyone else.

    >I know, right? I'm so glad that you got into Best Coast because I kind of brushed them off & didn't feel compelled to re-listen to them until you started talking about them. I'll be sending you that shirt soon (along with a copy of my summer jams mix — which, in response to your comment about summer jams on the other post, includes M.I.A. "Sunshowers" which is totally my M.I.A. summer jam.)

    >I'm having all these complicated feelings about California bands right now that Best Coast is pretty central to – like, I swear at least a third of why High School April set her sights on PDX was that all the music I was listening to was coming out of the Northwest, but here I am, almost five years later, and I am obsessed with SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA MUSIC! Is this a sign to move back??I don't actually think so, but still.
