Talk about an archetypical Best Coast song.

Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino digs rap.
In describing Best Coast's "sparkling" new album, Randall Roberts of the LA Times said this: With a voice that strives to hit Neko Case and Martha Reeves territory but which more often than not is in the Belinda Carlysle and Suzanna Hoffs range, (Bethany) Cosentino’s strength as a vocalist doesn't come from pitch-perfect vocal tone, but rather, it lies in how she and Bruno craft solid, three and four minute pop songs that suggest everyone from Buddy Holly to the Crystals to the Bangles without sounding like any of them.
Lemme just go ahead and get this out of the way: I kind of have a massive crush on adorable Best Coast songstress Bethany Cosentino.
