When I’m with you I have fun

Doing her best Brian Wilson impression
Those who saw Best Coast last night at the Biltmore already know that Bethany Cosentino & co. neglected to bring any merch with them across the border. If, like me, you were jonesing to get your hands on some of her recent singles, you’ll have to satisfy yourself with this mp3 download of “When I’m with You.”

Beginning as a bleary guitar-and-voice ballad, it suddenly explodes at the 45 second mark, speeding up dramatically as drums enter to propel it to a fuzzy, sun-scorched crescendo. “Shitgaze power ballad” might sound like a contradiction in terms, but that’s kind of what this is.

The song was previously released on 7″ via Black Iris. Hopefully you’ll have better luck than me in picking up a physical copy.
