Crazy for You doesn’t feel forced or contrived, but more genuinely lackadaisical. The Best Coast album is a nice blend of shoegazey sixties girl pop more akin to Vivian Girls or Dum Dum Girls than, say, She & Him. Frontwoman Bethany Cosentino has damn near perfect old-school rocker pipes with sneer to match, but the tracks tend to run together. All of the tracks on the first side are enjoyable in their own right, they’re just somewhat indistinguishable from one another. I do really love the stand-out songs, but they’re all stuck at the end of the disc. On the whole, it’s an enjoyable summertime listen, but be forewarned, these tracks are growers. There’s no real wow factor, even though there easily could have been. This girl is more the type to gradually wear down your resistance and win you over rather than sweep you off your feet. Give the album the chance to do so. Read full review at
