BEST COAST / The Only Place [2012]

Fuzzy, surf-pop duo Best Coast's 2012 sophomore effort The Only Place is inevitably darker and more mature than their debut but it's still some of the most damn fun this year.  
Channelling old school R.E.M & The Cure, with a dash of country, to complete their indie-surf rock style, Best Coast are joined by Jon Brion at the soundboard to give them a complete concrete sound.  It's pretty simple music & structures and borderline silly lyrics but what Best Coast does is nails it on the head with the simplicity and honesty of their passion.
