Best Coast performed “The Only Place” on David Letterman last night, off of the album of the same name. The new Best Coast album was wrapped up in Los Angeles, with producer Jon Brion doing the knob twiddling at Capitol Studios. Bethany had been reading Fleetwood Mac's book Tusk and watching Metallica's epic documentary Some Kind of Monster for guidance on how to not do the wrong things as Best Coast matures. She wanted to do it up right on The Only Place, but not take the band down a bad path. "We didn't want to make a record that was like, 'Whoa, what happened to Best Coast? This isn't Best Coast. What's the point of making it sound like you recorded it in your bedroom if you can make it sound like it was recorded at Capitol Records' Studio B?" she said when speaking to the LA Times.
The Only Place was released this week by Best Coast.
