heard on the wire

You know that I don’t care, wind in our hair

This was the first pop song that caught my ear this year, a slice of indie guitar loveliness from LA-based Best Coast.

One side of a vinyl-only single shared with Jeff The Brotherhood, this has never had a digital release and only came to my attention thanks to the fantastic Burning World.

It’s my second nomination for 2011’s song-from-each-year-of-my-life.
