Best Coast - Sun Was High (So Was I)

I don't know anything about this band and I couldn't be bothered to Google them. So lets just make something up shall we? Best Coast took their name from a misheard conversation when lead singer Ranulph Van Zorn was eating a bowl of Cheerios and remarked to lead guitarist Ty Stretch that he was wearing the 'best coat'. The misnomer also inspired their jangly pop-psychedelia sound and blissed-out west coast riffage. This is a tune that should make to sun feel guilty for not coming out to play. Come on Mr Sun, put your hat on and parade about like a jezebel.
