Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino has a goal for 2012: “I need to figure out a way to get people to stop thinking of me as the ‘stoner, cat loving’ girl,” she wrote to us in an email this week. “I’m not really like that anymore.” The California singer-songwriter hopes to shed her old image through Best Coast’s as-yet-untitled sophomore record, tentatively due out this spring.
Talking about her personal evolution, the 25-year-old wrote, “I mean, I am who I am— a weird Valley girl who likes watching TV and going to Cardio Barre. But writing this new record is the first step to the more grown-up me.” For the follow-up to 2010’s breakout Crazy for You, Cosentino and fellow Best Coast mainstay Bobb Bruno recorded at the storied Capitol Studios with a surprising producer: inventive pop vet Jon Brion, known for his soundtrack work for films like Punch-Drunk Love and collaborations with Kanye West and Fiona Apple.
