Washington Post live review captures the good and bad (plus includes references to Tallulah Gosh and Shop Assistants):

http://blog.washingtonpost.com/clicktrack/2010/09/in_concert_best_coast_at_rock.html

excerpt:

Amiable to a fault, Best Coast played its raucous pop at a ladylike volume, and paused now and then for offhand chatter. Cosentino wished the crowd a happy Rosh Hashanah, and talked a bit about her boyfriend. (That would be Wavves' frontman Nathan Williams, Sonny to Cosentino's Cher in today's Cali slacker-pop universe.) As for the songs, they involved a lot of "oohs,'' "las,'' and "whoas,'' and proceeded at one of two tempos: medium or fast. Faster was better, since the velocity somewhat compensated for the thin, sound-alike melodies.

Such tunes as "Boyfriend'' and "Summer Mood'' might have seemed more distinctive if they hadn't been part of a 55-minute set that included almost twice as many numbers as the band's 13-song debut album. The occasional guitar solo wasn't enough to inject variety into a set whose musical style (and psychological profile) never shifted. Rather than leave the crowd wanting more, Best Coast left the lingering sense that it had shown everything it might do in its entire career.

So I was getting my haircut last night and the guy cutting it was talking to me about music and we had the following exchange:

Him: "Have you ever heard Best Coast?"
Me: "Yeah, I like a couple of her songs."
Him: "Oh man, so you're totally into chillwave then?"
Me: "I don't know if I would say that."

Still never heard a note of this lot yet have been prejudiced against them due to Hipster Runoff slandering

Its a good formula I think, just gets wearying over a full-length.

The thing is, though, that Best Coast isn't chillwave.

Well, yeah, that was kind of my point about posting that exchange.

i was pretty resistant to this album at first but i have to concede it's won me over

I still grumble about When I'm With You being so bloody rare, I mean £40 on Ebay come on now. I know it's on the CD, but I kinda want to get this on vinyl.

So I've been roped into seeing these guys tonight. I liked the Vivian Girls first album, but not enough to invest in the follow-ups and all these inter-related bands got too confusing and numerous for me to keep track of (!), so I'm only listening to this for the first time but I'm actually quite looking forward to seeing them now, even if every live review I've seen hasn't been brimming with enthusiasm.

It helps, of course, that it's an absolutely glorious sunshine-filled afternoon here.

What a brilliant picture! Were you caught up in the crowdsurfing too? Been a while since I've seen that level of it at a gig here.

Thanks! No, I was in the photo pit and then watched from the back of the arch.

Oh I can't wait to hear Best Coast go "emo," aided by Jon fucking Brion. Jesus fucking christ.
