Song of the Day


DOWNLOAD: Boyfriend

Bethany Cosentino does a killer homage to 60’s girl groups like The Shirelles, The Shangri-Las and The Chiffons with her sad, lo-fi ballad, ‘Boyfriend’, off of the just-released Best Coast album, Crazy For You. The song has a wonderfully retro, transistor radio/mono sound and is so wrapped up in treble-heavy guitars and cymbal crashes that you’d swear they let Phil Spector outta jail to produce the thing! Head on over to MySpace for more from Best Coast.

  1. Dum Dum Girls are better. Brad, also may I suggest plugging the new Versus record, it’s quite good esp for a ~10 yr lapse.

    Hey…I like the Dum Dum Girls as much as the next guy, but they already had their time in the Sun on The List a few months ago… SOTD March 18, 2010 BT

  2. The SOD for Aug 5th doesn’t seem to actually have a link to the mp3 file.
    Thoroughly enjoying the SOD collection. Made a playlist and used it for a 1000+ mile road trip – played it twice through. My traveling partner had never heard any of the songs and was totally blown away by the great music.
    Keep it up.
