Best Coast, Fade Away
2013 | Label: Jewel City / AWAL

The blossoming of L.A.’s Best Coast has been something to behold. When Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno first convened in ’09, it was to deliver a scruffy, lo-fi take on surf-pop and girl group sound of the 1960s. They toured with the like-minded Vivian Girls, and enjoyed a flush of alt-hipness.

Their second album, 2012′s The Only Place, however, was recorded at Capitol Records’ Studio B (a flagrant Beach Boys connection, there), with Jon Brion, who… read more »

Who Are…Gap Dream

By Douglas Wolk, Contributor

Singer and multi-instrumentalist Gabe Fulvimar has been hovering around the music world for over a decade, but he came into his own in 2012 with the release of his first album under the name Gap Dream — a one-man project that combines his love of '60s psychedelic pop with his knack for vintage synthesizer sounds and home-recorded introspection. Fulvimar grew up in Akron, Ohio, then moved to Cleveland for a while. A few years ago,… more »

Who Are…Bleached

By Tobi Vail, Contributor

When women and girls listen to love songs written by and/or performed by men, we have to filter stuff out, switch pronouns and, often, navigate a sexist point of view. After a lifetime of listening to male-dominated pop music I'm used to making these kinds of adjustments in my head, but I still feel starved for love songs that I can actually identify with and dance to without a power struggle. This drives me to… more »

New Adventures in Hi-Fi

By David Greenwald, Contributor

D.I.Y. and hi-fi have rarely gone hand in hand. From the muscular crackle of Black Flag to the basement anthems of Guided by Voices, the sound of indie rock has long been the proudly noisy product of four walls and a four-track recorder. As laptops have replaced boomboxes, the aesthetic has endured, with bands embracing digital fuzz as a signal of both outsider cool and a thin wallet. But with the late-2000s lo-fi boom that launched… more »

Who Are…Wax Idols

By Barry Walters, Contributor

While Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino radiates all the sunny musical signposts of her native Los Angeles — specifically, surf guitar riffs and beach-buoyant harmonies — Wax Idols' Oakland transplant Hether Fortune sings, writes and generates a sound that references several decades of dark British alt-rock, albeit with a contemporary DIY spirit. Like other buzzy Bay Area bands, Fortune and her supporting players prove that punk and pop can still come together without going corporate. eMusic's Barry… more »

Six Degrees of Wavves’ Life Sux EP

By Austin L. Ray, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »

eMusic Selects on Amplified

By Wondering Sound Staff, Contributor

For this month's eMusic Selects, we decided to try something a bit different: we teamed up with the excellent blog Amplified to solicit their input on which bands they loved, and also to produce a final package a bit bigger than what we usually do. We're thrilled with the results. Not only did Dan and David at Amplified have great feedback when it came to band selection, they also produced a pair of terrific video… more »
