Diplo, Best Coast releasing (separate) new EPs

By | Published on Thursday 12 September 2013


So, as intimated in that headline; Diplo and Best Coast both have unrelated (except by the fact that they’re EPs) EPs to release.

I bet they’ll really appreciate being jammed into the same article, especially Diplo, who earlier this week revealed the game-plan to his extended player, ‘Biggie Bounce’. Carrying six tracks featuring shady characters like RiFF RAFF, Mike Posner and Action Bronson, it’ll be available via Diplo’s Mad Decent label on 8 Oct. Preview it via its Angger Dimas and Travis Porter-assisted title track:

Next; Best Coast and their seven-track ‘mini-LP’ (which I still say is an EP), ‘Fade Away’. The first significant release by Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno since 2012’s ‘The Only Place’ will go on sale 21 Oct, this via Consentino’s new vanity label, Jewel City.

Adding a ‘Fade Away’ forward, Consentino writes: “Everything in this band has worked out so organically that sometimes it scares me that something bad is going to happen. I don’t even understand why this is happening. I made some songs, I put them up on the internet, and here I am now. I feel like the luckiest person in the world. If I wasn’t doing this, I don’t know what I would be doing”.

‘Fade Away’ will also carry a pair of tracks Best Coast released earlier this year as a special Record Store Day single. Hear one of them, ‘Who Have I Become’, here:
