It’s been five years since Best Coast last released an LP, yet the Cali duo (Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno) made the wait well worth it. Always Tomorrow is a stellar collection of 11 songs that shows a considerable progression for the band—both in sound and in Cosentino’s now-substance-free lyrical perspective—reminding us that good things often take time. The sunny lead single, “For The First Time,” whetted our appetites for what was to come, with power-poppy tracks “Everything Has Changed” and “Graceless Kids” providing slick rock guitars and a positive mental attitude. While there’s Always Tomorrow, we’re glad the new Best Coast is here today. (4/5)
