MP3: Best Coast & Wavves – “Got Something For You”
Really don’t know how to describe how cute this is without reverting to LOLCats. I mean, indie rock’s first couple, Best Coast (aka. Bethany Cosentino) and Wavves (aka. Nathan Williams), performing a Christmas duet about giving eachother presents? This is just too adorable.
Target in the USA have released this track as part of a free Christmas compilation, also featuring Blackalicious, Bishop Allen and Coconut Records among others.
An undeniable highlight, “Got Something For You” is a rare feat for either Best Coast or Wavves: probably the only track they’ve ever written which would have you opt for a crackling fireplace over a surfboard.
