New Noise From Best Coast & Wavves As They Tour

  • Best Coast & Wavves - Summer is Forever split 7" (Mexican Summer)
    • This split has some previously released material (BC's "Crazy For You" and Wavves' "King of the Beach" are the title tracks of their latest respective albums) as well as one new track from each act.
    • Wavves' "Stained Glass (Won't You Let Me Into Your Heart)" is upbeat psychedelic pop with woozy guitar and organ in the background and multi-tracked vocals and drums well up front. Fun tune.
    • BC's new contribution, "When You Wake Up", is standard '90s-style guitar rock á la Letters to Cleo. Nice sound and good melody and lyrics. "It's always 11:30 when you wake up", goes the chorus to this mid-tempo song.
    • The digital version also contains "Hawaii" by a labelmate that I like much better, No Joy. It was on their album Ghost Blonde in November, which I raved about here previously.
    • Not sure when you can actually buy this thing, but I believe Wavves and BC are offering it for purchase on their current tour together. It took me some searching, but I finally found the MP3s (not including the No Joy track, even though it says it has it) posted last Tuesday at mikkisays.net.
So this may be the only blog streaming one of the new tracks so far. [Found it streaming at several sites since Jan. 12th! I must have been half asleep when I posted this.] Please enjoy Best Coast's latest noise.
