Free Music Friday! Best Coast - "The Only Place"
MP3: "The Only Place" - http://www.mexicansummer.com/news/new-track-from-best-coast/
Consistent with previous Best Coast releases, The Only Place sees Cosentino handling all songwriting and rhythm guitar and multi-instrumentalist Bobb Bruno manning lead guitar, bass and drums. This time around, though, the band has enlisted renowned producer and composer Jon Brion to fully realize what Consentino has characterized as a more mature album than Crazy For You. Brion's reputation precedes him at this point, but suffice to say that the cleaner, richer sound that he provides perfectly compliments the more complex instrumentation of this new offering from the band. Most notably, this applies to Cosentino's vocals, which have been placed bare and beautiful at these songs' forefront, rather than obscured by distortion and reverb.
