Last night Best Coast visited the set of Conan to put in a performance, the first we've seen in a while if truth be told. Performing "Do You Still Love Me Like You Used To?" from The Only Place and it will put an early morning smile of your face if you missed it last night. Check out Bethany and co doing their stuff up at the top courtesy of The Audio Perv.
We've heard a couple of songs from Just Tell Me You Want Me - A Tribute To Fleetwood Mac over the past few months. Today we get to stream the entire project which features covers of Fleetwood Mac from the likes of Tame Impala, MGMT, St. Vincent, Washed Out, The Kills and Lykke Li. Stream it in full below and from the 14th of August you can pick up a copy of it over here.
Earlier in the year we got to enjoy Best Coast performing a cover of Fleetwood Mac's "Storms" live at The Wiltern in LA. Last night they paid a visit to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and put in a beautiful sounding rendition of the track once more but this time it wasn't at a small venue but for the masses watching at home. Thanks to The Audio Perv, if you missed it, you can watch it at the top of the page.
During his performance in Portland on Wednesday night, Kendrick Lamar was joined onstage by a rather unlikely guest. Providing the chorus vocals on the song "No Make-Up (Her Vice)," originally sung by Colin Munroe and featured on last year's Section.80, was Best Coast's Bethany Cosantino. This was the first time Lamar has performed the song in a live setting, and the combination of him and Cosantino was surprisingly good. Watch the replay above.
Director Ace Norton knows all too well the type of imagery associated with the summery stylings of Best Coast, and in the new video for "The Only Place," he brings all of this into play. Sunny weather, beaches, convertibles driving down the coast, and all kinds of fun, cutesy behavior from Beth Cosentino and co. are what you will find here.
The Only Place is out now via Wichita Recordings.
Best Coast have been busy touring and promoting their recently released LP, The Only Place. At a stop on their tour in LA at The Wiltern, the band covered Fleetwood Mac's classic track, "Storms". Bethany takes centre stage and delivers a great vocal performance. The footage can be watched at the top of the page and it's pretty decent fan shot video from front and centre at the gig.
Best Coast returned to the late night circuit last night with a visit to The Late Show with David Letterman and whilst there they performed the title-track from their sophomore studio album,The Only Place. While their album is still marinating on our playlist the performance sounded pretty fresh given that the album hasn't knocked me for six personally. See what you make of their rendition at the top via The Audio Perv.
