Cudi, Best Coast, Batmanglij – All Summer. IT’S SO GOOD!

Everyone knows about Cleveland native turned Hip-Hop star, it’s nice to see him doing interesting collaborations that stray from the current “Hip-Hop formula.”

Best Coast is an American indie rock duo based in Los Angeles, California, and is often categorized under the subgenres of garage rock, surf pop, lo-fi, and ‘chillwave’. The band currently consists of Bethany Cosentino, who writes all of the band’s songs and fronts the group, and multi-instrumentalist Bobb Bruno. The band typically performs as either a three-piece or a four-piece live in order to fill in the vacant bassist/drummer positions, and has played with Ali Koehler on drums of the Vivian Girls in the past. Their single “Boyfriend” is on the list of Pitchfork’s best new tracks. The band is recognizable for their fuzzy, low-fidelity sound in the vein of surf rock. Thurston Moore and Bill Murray are known fans of the group. The band is signed to the label Mexican Summer. Best Coast has received considerable popularity on the indie scene with their 7″ singles and EPs, including Make You Mine and Black Iris. The band recently released a music video for their single “When I’m With You.” Their first album, Crazy For You, is due to be released on July 27, 2010.

Rostam Batmanglij is the glue of Vampire Weekend, he’s an all in one producer, engineer and musician that seems to be branching out into producing for other people, it’s great to get that new breed of urban producer.
