Best Coast: The Review Leading to More Reviews

So, I have been placed in a position to review the musical group “Best Coast.”

Before this, I had no exposure to any of their music, and according to their Myspace they are listed as “Surf/Pop/Gospel.”

Surf Pop is an excellent genre that really can provide relaxing but also very intense music, depending on how people look at it.

So what’s the sound of “Best Coast” like?

The best part of this group is their Vocal Patterns. By that I mean, the melodies go very well with the mood of the song. Another great thing is with this feminine Surfy team are the videos. This video is *love.*

When I’m with you
Off the album “Black Iris.” It’s a 7”

On an ending note:

This group really is not for me. Despite having some vocals that I like, and fun-to-watch-vids, the sound is just not something I can get into. When I look to Surf Pop as a genre of music I need something that gives more of a bold presence and shows the real feelings on the instrumentals, not just the vocals. The instruments in this group are a little too downturned for me.

But nonetheless, enjoy.

Are you bi-coastal?(Hugh Jackman joke)
Do you like Surf Pop?
Do you like Gospel?

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
