Best Coast craft love letters to and from California


Best Coast, which includes Cosentino's best friend Bobb Bruno on bass, goes on its first North American tour with the Vivian Girls starting next week. Cosentino is looking forward to stretching her legs onstage. "When we play live, I don't think about it too hard," she says. "Mistakes are made and words get messed up, but it's just fun. There was a couple slow dancing in the front at one show and I wanted to cry. They came up to me afterward and said, "That was our song." If I've fulfilled any sort of dream, that was it."

Think of Best Coast as a sonic love letter to California.
