Best Coast - The Only Place - Alternative Press

Best Coast - The Only Place - Alternative Press | Alternative Rock | Scoop.it

Musically, The Only Place contains no trace of the lo-fi, distorted daydreams which comprised early Best Coast 7-inches—or, for that matter, the reverb-soaked, girlish laments of their 2010 debut, Crazy For You. Recorded at Capitol Records’ iconic Studio B—where Frank Sinatra and Green Day have made albums—and produced by Jon Brion (Kanye West, Rufus Wainwright), the record is sophisticated.

Animal Collective: 'We wrote our new album as a rock band'

Animal Collective: 'We wrote our new album as a rock band' | Alternative Rock | Scoop.it
Animal Collective have spoken about the making of their new album 'Centipede Hz' and revealed that they wrote their new record "as a rock band in a room".

The Baltimore electro-psychedelic band will release the album, which is the 10th LP of their career, in September via Domino Records.

'Centipede Hz' is the band's first full-length studio album since their 2009 effort 'Merriweather Post Pavillion' and follows the release in 2010 of the band's "visual album" 'ODDSAC'.

Speaking on BBC Radio 1 last night (May 14), Brian Weitz said that the band had "gone back to their roots" on the new record and moved away from the sample-heavy direction of 'Merriweather Post Pavilion'.
