As a former member of reverb-soaked drone masters Pocahaunted, Bethany Cosentino — singer, guitarist and primary songwriter of Best Coast — is no stranger to lo-fi sounds. In Best Coast, however, she departs from her former band's hazy, dreamy soundscapes and instead crafts short, energetic pop songs filled with crunchy surf rock guitars and keening '60s girl group vocals. One of the most talked-about bands in the weeks leading up to this year's South By Southwest Music Festival , Best Coast plays the Gibson Guitar Showroom in this set, made available by KEXP.
