Beth Cosentino of Best Coast is a star not because of record sales or music videos, but because, like all the best pop lyricists, she makes her pain universal. It's magic—you could be bummed about a death in the family or some idiot talking shit on you, and Cosentino becomes the Siren for that kind of sadness. After a massive year for Best Coast, today she quietly put up a new song on her blog with a short statement: "When times are rough for me, and I am traveling and not sleeping, and am worried about daily life, it always makes me feel better to know that my fans are out there." We feel the same about you.
