listen/download: Best Coast at Daytrotter

I recently looked up the location of my favourite studio, and it happens that Daytrotter is located in Northwestern Illinois. HOWEVER, this recently dug out session was strangely recorded in LA, at Elliott Smith's old studio when the daytrotter guys were out visiting Socal in October of 2009. the recordings are very raw and quite excellent. read more and grab the whole session HERE
