Released: Oct 2013
Label: Jewel City
Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino is a master of melody, and Fade Away's highlights point to an exciting future: "Who Have I Become" is one of the group's best songs, period, with a pleasing arena-via-The Replacements production sheen and exhaustive delivery, plus an exquisite double-tracked chorus. Closing ballad "I Don't Know How" shows off Cosentino's vocal acrobatics and teaches that R&B-obsessed indie need not be mutually exclusive with rocking out. Meanwhile, "Fear of My Identity" and "Baby I'm Crying" round out Best Coast's increasingly attractive debt to classic rock.
