Best Coast 

The Only Place (Wichita)

Best Coast is hitting its sophomore slump in a big way with The Only Place, a collection of barely there pop tunes that lack way too much creativity or imagination for a band that was being heralded as the next Giant Drag a few years ago. Lead songwriter Bethany Cosentino delivers paint by numbers lyrics and Intro to Guitar song structures without the fuzz or depth of previous efforts. Jon Brion tags on as producer this time around, but it's hard to tell what exactly his role was in the recording process. The whole album sounds like a bush-league version of Rilo Kiley, and yes, it is as awful as that sounds.
