Best Coast - 2 January 2013, The HiFi

…and on to main act – Best Coast. Officially the band are touring their new album ‘The Only Place, but it hasn’t received great reviews (even though the songs they played weren’t bad) and the band almost seemed apologetic about playing songs from it, instead focussing on material from their debut. Like Bleeding Knees Club, Best Coast’s music has a tendency to sound a bit samey, but they offset this with some incredibly catchy songs that, even if they’re still part of the same formula, are good enough that it doesn’t really matter.

The sound for this is really really good, but the performance itself is basically a standard run through. Nothing wrong with it, but it won’t be a show that sticks in the mind.
