In 2010, Best Coast dominated the blogosphere with the anxiously anticipated debut album Crazy For You, nabbing them spots on an overwhelming amount of Best of 2010 lists. Since then, they've wasted little time in recording their second full-length, The Only Place, released just last Tuesday on Mexican Summer. With the new material, they brought on Jon Brion as producer, a man who requires no introduction within the music industry. The resulting sound - although definitely further from the lo-fi sensibilities of its predecessor - still remains true to the laid-back guitar driven tunes they've become known for.
Best Coast kicked off their tour on the West Coast (it is the best coast, after all) last weekend; Amoreena was at their Oakland gig at the Fox Theater this past Saturday, and took a great many of awesome photos!
