‘In My Room’

This appropriately titled song from former Pocahaunted member Bethany Cosentino is the title track from her latest 7″ release under the name of Best Coast, coming soon through the Group Tightener label, and the follow-up to the Where The Boys Are cassette she released earlier this year featuring five lo-fi summery tracks recorded – you guessed it – in her room. Inspired by a rejuvenated obsession with Los Angeles after an unhappy year spent away from her native California studying in New York, the Best Coast project is all about being young and in the sun, where the most necessary accessory for an afternoon of beach-lazing, even more essential than sunscreen and a towel, is a battered but cherished ’80s ghettoblaster on which to blare out rudimentary pop songs scarfed in a thick haze of fuzz and distortion. In terms of achieving its goals, ‘In My Room’ is perfect. Spilling over with self-harmonies, it hisses with a feelgood vibe that carries on long after its 109 seconds are up. MP3 after the jump.
