I’ve been to Los Angeles four times. Its climate, fashion, cuisine, and pace are a refreshing break from the buttoned-down stuffiness of Washington, DC. Unfortunately, something both cities share is snarling traffic.
Having good music is essential when driving anywhere, but especially in L.A. and Washington where you may find yourself at a standstill on an interstate day or night.
I really got into LA’s Best Coast, after the release of their first album, Crazy for You. They have a sunny, guitar-heavy pop sound that reminds me of my favorite groups like The Ronettes, The Go-Gos, and the Dum Dum Girls.
Their new EP, Fade Away, is out on October 22nd, and is available to preview on Soundcloud.
Check it out whether you’re cruising around Santa Monica, venturing out to Great Falls, Va. to see the autumn colors, or spending your day sunning, walking, or sitting outside blogging anywhere between either coast.
