Best Coast

Always Tomorrow

[Concord]

A certain veneration of bubblegum simplicity was always key to Bethany Cosentino’s Best Coast project, ever since she arrived on the scene with her (still magical) debut single, Sun Was High (So Was I).

Whereas her earliest work – with its preoccupation with cats, weed, teen romance and little else – was playfully shallow, her more recent dispatches feel less like the sun-kissed transmissions of an untroubled mind and more like slices of wafer-thin Haim.

Always Tomorrow’s personality-less by-the-numbers riffs continues with this Hindenburgian trend; recalling, as it does, Weezer’s on-going, interminable twilight.
