MP3: Best Coast – “Boyfriend”

Best Coast
I wish Bethany Cosentino wished I was her boyfriend. Since first hitting the blog circuit last year, the Best Coast frontwoman has become quite the AltBro pin-up: charming the pants off near everybody with herĀ  feline-centric blog posts, potentially trademark-infringing videos, and insightful tweets. And that’s before you even take into account her endless output of warm, fuzzy, lo-fi, surf-pop anthems.

With bandmate Bobb Bruno by her side, she now presents her debut album under the Best Coast moniker, entitled ‘Crazy For You’. And as you’d expect, it’s sweeter than sharing a fudge banana sundae and a Cherry Coke with your high-school flame.

Just check out this free mp3 of album opener, “Boyfriend”. With its aching “I wish he was my boyfriend” refrain, it might just be the most instantly adorable song you’ll hear this year. It’s all the best/worst parts of your teenage summers, woven together in two-and-a-half-minutes: the pining, the nervousness, the heartbreak, the innocence, the naivity, and the endless sense of possibilities.
