Best Coast - The Only Place

"What do you expect?" rarely suffices as a track review, but this is Best Coast we're talking about, so of course it's a classically sunkissed song about Bethany's lazing around on the beach, almost certainly toking whilst there. Less lackadasical, more filled out perhaps due to the influence of Jon Brion's production, the album press release notes suggest there's curveballs to come when the album of which this is the title and opening track is released on May 14th, but when an upbeat chorus sees Cosentino declare "why would you live anywhere else?" it's not like she yet feels the need to come back into the shade.
