It seems hard to believe that today Eagle Rock's Best Coast is dropping their debut album, Crazy for You. With all the hype and free MP3s tossed into the digital wind--sometimes by your's truly--it feels like Best Coast has been around for quite a while. But today, Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno's sunny pop with a grungy edge hits the streets on the fabulous Mexican Summer label.
Best Coast has also extended their headlining sashay across the states beginning on September 4th at the potentially bodacious F Yeah Fest.
After the jump, we have a free MP3 download of "Boyfriend," aka, the best song to include on a mixtape intended to lure potential beaus (or get a restraining order), and Best Coast's full tour details. AND since Cosentino seems to get a lot of attention from the media, we've included our favorite video of Bobb Bruno in a bunny suit singing a duet with Fiona Apple.
Nice work Bruno!
