Upset has the makings for being one of the best bands out there right now and surprise, surprise: they totally are. Former drummer for Best Coast and Vivian Girls, Ali Koehler, takes on guitar and lead vocals, ex-La Sera member Jennifer Prince sings and plays lead guitar, and last we have drummer Patty Schemel of Hole and Death Valley Girls fame. The trio’s collective punk roots shine through on their latest project, Upset, the band you wish existed when you ... Read More
Best Coast got me through my first break-up, funeral, homesickness, and pretty much a decade of teen angst. I remember driving around during summer feeling so hopeful and young, yet sooo looow and moody. Best Coast was probably my only best friend at one point…therefore, I went to see them at a music festival so I could cry front row. But thanks to this binaural (360-degree field of sound) recording from Ryan Reichenfeld of “Baby I’m ... Read More
Last Friday night, the Tinderbox Music Festival celebrated its fourth year with performances by seventeen kickass female artists at The Music Hall of Williamsburg. Founded by singer/songwriter Alyson Greenfield in 2010, the festival serves as a platform for up and coming female artists. With acts like Deerhoof, Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, Awkwafina (featured in BUST & a performer at our 20th Anniversary Party), this year did not disappoint. But it wasn't ... Read More
What happens when you team up punk-rock legend Iggy Pop and surf-pop darling Bethany Cosentino? You get a rockin’ track that’s a little gritty, a little dreamy, and utterly infectious. The forefather of punk rock and Best Coast front woman were approached by HBO’s True Blood to collaborate on a song for an upcoming episode and each really dug the idea.  Pop and Cosentino, both self-proclaimed fans of the show, recently recorded ...

Since Best Coast debuted the first single, “The Only Place,” from their new album (also named The Only Place), I have been impatiently awaiting the full album (as in, listening to the single, non-stop, on repeat, for days on end). Like 2010’s Crazy For You, the new album puts Bethany Cosentino's sentimental and direct lyrics against a backdrop of waves and sun. And, thankfully, NPR’s First Listen is now streaming the whole album ... Read More

Drew Barrymore in the director's chair, Maeby Fünke as a gang member, and an epic romance between young, troubled lovers. By way of movie magic, all of this was made a reality in Best Coast's new music video for their hit song, "Our Deal." Though just four minutes long, the ultra-mini film is packed with action, tears, forbidden love, and hair worth pushing your lover off a building for. The video keeps the romantic, dreamy tones of Best Coast's song, but ... Read More

Coming up this June 16th, Best Coast and Those Darlins will be playing a Planned Parenthood of New York City Action Fund benefit! Now only are we big fans of both bands over here at BUST, this is a cause that has been and stays near and dear our hearts. Personally, when my insurance decided not to cover birth control unless for medical reasons (versus my “crazy and wild” sex life), Planned Parenthood was there to provide birth control I could afford. ...
