Best Coast: This sunny surf-pop combo from Southern California is something special. That was first made obvious on the band's debut, 2010's "Crazy for You," and later confirmed with its sophomore effort, this year's "The Only Place." Plus, Best Coast keeps getting better on the live stage. In that regard, the band had grown by leaps and bounds from the time I first saw it at the 2011 Outside Lands festival in San Francisco to when I caught it at the 2012 South by Southwest in Texas. Prep for the band's set by listening to such sparkly gems as "Summer Mood," "When I'm with You," "Boyfriend" and "The Only Place."
