Three out of five late night shows are in repeats, the fourth hasn’t premiered yet and the fifth is on TBS. So in theory, we’d have to go with the fifth but in practice I am sodded if I am gonna give the nod to Ashley Monroe on Conan or anywhere else so, instead, here is present to Best Coast because I still love California Nights.

Two years ago today -more or less, I took my VIP ticket and stuck it in my ear at Governors Ball as torrential rain poured down for the entire day, eventually cancelling the activities. Man, was I upset and swore I’d never go back again and might have kept to it except, the weather improved for the next two days and then I was thisclose for West’s great performance on the Sunday and so whomp -there I was

The album barely peaks and never dips, unlike the first two albums weed isn’t an essential character in the stories; she seems a little less dependent on artificial paranoia. Instead, there’s a snapshot of a woman nearing her thirties and running in place in the California days and California nights as her youth slips by and that is as close to be precisely what Best Coast want it to be.

This looks difficult but it is a no brainer. Everything I’ve heard off the new Mumford And Sons and My Morning Jacket albums has been pretty damn second rate and both look like disasters. Sure I like Palma Violets, youngsters and with talent, and I like Todd, an olderster with talent. The Metz album will be a goodie, basically definitely and Boney James… wait a second BONEY JAMES??? The most anticipated is Best Coast

‘the two of us — me and Bob — don’t look like we belong together in the same band, which is something I’ve always loved. I’ll look at photos of us together sometimes and just be struck by what a strange-looking team we are. But that’s what makes us special.’

Feeling OK – Best Coast – Third song off the upcoming album, and really, don’t we get the point by now? At some time her ongoing depression is so boring, she hasn’t even really depressed. She is just bland and meh and going through the motions. For years on end. It’s not significantly worse than anything else… still, it is like when you have a friend who always complains about their boyfriend… after awhile you’re like “for godssake knock it off” – B

Direct Current is always a little frail on hip hop, which is why it isn’t the only reference we use, but otherwise it does show a singular sensibility an a good peek at the Spring of our warmth an happiness. Pick of the litter? Best Coast. I loved their new single. Otherwise, Hot chip, Paul weller, Mumford And Sons, Metz II (a band I’ve wanted to see for awhile now), Beth Hart, The Wombats…

Best Coast have made the move from the Beach Boys to the Dream Syndicate while remaining true to themselves. It is a real goodie with a sterling guitar break and a haunting, sadly sad (does anybody do sad quite as well nowadays?) vocal

A menu inspired by foods the band loves in LA or in the road. LAist got a sample of the menu, which will include: rice fritters with pear, paste and honey; pork spare ribs with crispy sweet potato; ginger panna cotta with jasmine granita and frozen grapes; and maple flatbreads

Best Coast is quite huge in its hometown! I arrived too late to see the big line outside the store, but there was one, a big one turning around the block. It was a crowd of girls, lots of Latino girls, with gay guys or straight guys, all looking very young to me, having that same Silver-lake-hipster-in-the-know look.
