Best Coast The Only PlaceBest Coast Covers Fleetwood Mac’s “Storms”
 
From Pitchfork, dad-rock loving duo Best Coast has covered a song by their beloved Fleetwood Mac, “Storms,” from their underrated 1979 album Tusk. For now, you have to track to about 58:10 in this edition of BBC Radio 6’s Radcliffe & Maconie show
 
Here’s the cool part: You can get the cover on a 7” that comes with The Only Place at independent record stores. Preorder your copy of The Only Place here at Amoeba and you’ll get a copy of the 7” with the moody and beautiful “Storms,” which shows off Bethany Cosentino’s growing confidence as a singer of uncommon power.
 
Ty Segall & White Fence – “Time”
 
I interviewed Ty Segall a while back about his collaboration with White Fence, called Hair, a match made in garage-pop heaven that was released this week — pick it up here. Here’s a fun psychedelic video of their song “Time” recorded for Room 205.

 

Derde Verde – “Go to Sleep” video

 
From Buzzbands.la, psych-pop band Derde Verde have been playing great shows around L.A. for a while now, just capping off a residency at Echo Park’s Lot 1. Artist Yelena Zhelezov directed this whimsical trip on fake wings through grimey eastside haunts for their song “Go to Sleep.” It’s pretty irresistibly sweet. I’m also a sucker for it because of the Frank’s Highland Park Camera storefront at the beginning.
