FREE MP3: Best Coast - The Only Place


Best Coast







Bethany Cosentino really, really loves her home state of California. It inspired her band name (Best Coast), and her music exemplifies a lo-fi, let’s-go-surf-in-the-sun sound. Her latest dedication to The Golden State is today’s free download – her new song “The Only Place.” This isn't a humble ode, with proud references to Californian amenities like beaches and waves, and somewhat arrogant lines like “why would you live anywhere else,” and “this is the only place for me.” Is this better or worse than Best Coast's cat-inspired debut album, 2010's Crazy For You?

“The Only Place” is the title track from Best Coast’s upcoming second album. As you might’ve guessed, the album art features California (being clutched by a bear, like the state's Bear Flag). You can pick up The Only Place on May 15th – until then, download the first single for free below. You can catch Best Coast live when they perform at the Majestic Theatre on July 25th.
But alas. One musician’s love is another’s displeasure.  During the first spin of “The Only Place,” I couldn’t help but think of Death Cab For Cutie’s song “Why You’d Want To Live Here” from 2001’s The Photo Album. Ben Gibbard’s lyrical diss to California’s biggest city lies in stark contrast to Cosentino’s song: “I'm in Los Angeles today, garbage cans comprise the medians of freeways…and I can't see why you'd want to live here.” Ouch.
Which side are you on? Do you love or loathe our western state mate?
