Video: Best Coast Live on Fallon

 

A winter tour begins
soon, too. With Wavves, no less.

 

Wow, what a difference 6 months or so can make. Last year when
Best Coast’s debut album Crazy For You came out, music buffs smitten by the key track “Boyfriend” may have been
somewhat, er, underwhelmed by the band’s live presence. “Boyfriend” in
particular could sound disturbingly anemic compared to the fulsome album
version.

 

No more, though, as the clip, below, of the band doing the
song on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night ably demonstrates.

 

Meanwhile, Best
Coast is about to head
out on a national tour shortly, with their musical (and in at least one
instance, personal) soul mates Wavves. It kicks off Jan. 21 (full itinerary
below) and they’ll be offering an exclusive tour-only Summer is Forever split 7″ on Mexican Summer:

 

Best Coast – When You Wake Up
Wavves – Stained Glass (Won’t You Let Me Into Yr Heart)

 

Additionally, Mexican Summer will be releasing an iTunes exclusive
sampler featuring the MP3s of these tracks and more from Wavves, Best Coast and
tour mates No Joy on January 11:

 

Best Coast – Crazy For You
Wavves – King of the Beach
No Joy – Hawaii
