iTunes Weekly Rewind Podcast Marathon

This week, we’re listening in on some of the best music of 2010, as chosen by iTunes staff members.

If April is the cruelest month, perhaps December is the most contentious, as the annual ritual of compiling “Best Of” lists generates a frenzy of critical opinion and enough heated discussion to light up a forest of transplanted fir trees. We hope you enjoyed our reasons for highlighting the work of the Black Keys, Eminem, Lady Antebellum and Bruno Mars, among other 2010 standouts, but we feel a little guilty for not devoting more podcast minutes to briefly mentioned breakthrough act, Best Coast. Here’s why we think they’re here to stay.

Fronted by Bethany Cosentino, with staunch support from Bobb Bruno and recently inducted drummer Ali Koehler, Best Coast has cracked a winning noise-pop formula by striking a near-perfect balance of familiar elements — cruise through debut album Crazy for You, on which most songs clock in around the two-and-a-half minute mark, and you’ll find “echoes” (and we choose the word with care, given the reverberating sonic feel of the release) of punk era wizards the Ramones and the Buzzcocks, a plethora of surf and garage rockers old and new, modern West Coast wonder-girl Jenny Lewis (who shares with Cosentino a pre-pubescent brush with L.A. showbiz), and those ’60s girl groups distinguished by collaboration with Phil Spector. Wherever distortion appears on the album, it’s an unforced accent, not a mechanical assault, and you quickly find yourself wanting to sink deeper into the band’s comforting layers of pop-fuzz.

While Cosentino indulges a lyrical obsession with romance, indolence and cats, there’s far more going on here than first meets the ear. Check out “When I’m With You” and you’ll hear an artist who hits an honest emotional note without spilling her guts all over the place: the way she slowly and sweetly drawls “I hate sleeping alone” will follow you from shower to sidewalk — in fact, every track here nails the old grey whistle test, pop’s most fundamental measuring stick. The charm of the album’s title track emerges from the way she’s so upbeat about all the things that drive her mad about her other half. If you’d like a sense of where this hugely promising outfit is heading, cue up “Our Deal” which follows a thread of emotional complexity without ever deserting the band’s simple songwriting principles. Watch this space.

This week, we’re listening in on music from R. Kelly, Dave Brubeck, Keith Urban, and Annie Lennox

While we’re talking about songs that make frequent appearances we need to call out the mother of all media friendly songs — Katrina and the Waves “Walking On Sunshine.” Its musically sunny disposition and sharp poppy horn embellishments have made it the go-to song to connote optimism, good times, or anything upbeat, and landed it in numerous trailers, movies, and TV shows. Katrina and the Waves, like this week’s genius picks Marshall Crenshaw and the Shocking Blue, are the undeserving recipients of one-hit wonder status. A quick trip to their anthology offers up minor sparkling pop gems “Going Back To Liverpool” (made famous by The Bangles), “Sunny Street,” and the rock inspired Pat Benatar-esque “Do You Want Crying.” But the real surprise here is the revelation of Katrina Leskanich as soul singer on both the Aretha/Annie Lennox like “Is That It” and the should-have-been-covered-by-Etta James “The Sun Won’t Shine”.
