Published Jun 18, 2010This summer, California fuzz lovers Best Coast will be aiming to make the leap from blog favourites to full-fledged indie sensations. As we recently learned, band's first LP, Crazy for You is due out July 27 via Mexican Summer. Then, in September, singer Bethany Cosentino and sidekick Bobb Bruno will be hitting the road for a series of tour dates in the eastern half of North America.
The fall outing includes performances in Toronto and Montreal with British noise rockers Male Bonding. There are also a handful of dates with up-and-coming New Yorkers Cults.
As for the album, it was recorded at L.A.'s Black Iris studio with producer Lewis Pesacov of Foreign Born. According to a press release, the 12-song, 29-minute LP is "a collection of maudlin and magical songs that approach relationships with a pure heart, a cloudy mind and pair of gas station sunglasses."
Scroll past the tour dates to check out the tracklist. You can also see the awesomely summery cover art above, which features a picture of Cosentino's cat, Snacks.
If you would like to pre-order the album, head over to Mexican Summer's website now. For $45, you can pick up the Snacks Super Bundle, which comes with Crazy for You on CD and coloured vinyl, as well as a T-shirt, tote bag, sticker and an advance stream of the album.
