Best Coast’s second album, “The Only Place,” is the summer soundtrack for 2012.
With lyrics such as, “Why would you live anywhere else?/We’ve got the ocean, got the babes/Got the sun, we’ve got the waves/This is the only place for me,” the backdrop of Southern California creeps into your head and you could be anywhere—a crowded beach in Chicago or a frozen pond in Siberia—and long for a pair of cut-offs and a tube top. Best Coast duo Bethany Cosentino and Babb Bruno have put together a mostly mellow album of catchy indie-pop songs that will creep up on you at work or in bed. Cosentino’s voice lingers and lilts just like cigarette smoke in hot, hazy air.
