Best Coast Bring Sunny Cali Pop-Rock to "Letterman"

In late April I took a nice little trip out to sunny California, where I caught Coachella Weekend Two and even kicked it with Marilyn Manson at his West Hollywood pad. It's a gorgeous place, that California, and I want to go back. Like, soon. I was reminded of its awesomeness last week when I saw Cali Kings the Beach Boys here in New York City, but this new clip of Best Coast rocking their I-love-California anthem "The Only Place" Wednesday night on Letterman has me trolling for cheap plane tickets. 

What do you guys think of "The Only Place"? Does it compare to singer-guitarist Bethany Cosentino's first album, Crazy for You? I haven't spent enough time with the new record to say one way or the other, but I DO love Best Coast's breakout single "Sun Was High (So Was I)," which is yet another tribute to all things SoCal.
