Plenty of recent bands have attempted lo-fi, reverb-drenched indie rock, but 23-year-old Bethany Cosentino and multi-instrumentalist Bobb Bruno of Best Coast do it the dreamiest. The New York duo releases their official full-length debut, “Crazy For You,” later this month, and it’ll likely draw comparisons to Beach House, for its slow-developing but hummable girl-driven melodies, and to Vivian Girls, for its overall rackety, garage-rock sound (and because Vivian Girls drummer Ali Koehler occasionally sits in with the band). Thankfully, unlike Vivian Girls, the duo behind Best Coast is more coherent and show a nonchalant adherence to staying pitch-perfect, slowly spreading the seeds of lazy surf-rock. Preliminary samples from “Crazy For You” have sounded encouraging, with indications that the band has used the studio to beef-up songs here and there, but are ultimately the same sixties-inspired pop group that made such alluring, hypnotic covers of old Beach Boys and Lesley Gore tunes.
