cassettes Top MP3s of the Week (9/20)

Tons of collaborations made the countdown this week, some sensible and others bizarre. But, our No. 1 spot goes a legendary singer-songwriter, who’s been releasing a new single every couple months leading up to a highly anticipated full-length.

10. Best Coast – “I Don’t Know How”

Jonathan Rado

Best Coast’s show-stopping “I Don’t Know How” is the most accurate impression of rock heads like her dude, Nathan Williams, to date, meshing a subtle ballad with a driven rock jam. While her lyrics spell out her typical love confessions, Cosentino’s vocals sound stronger than ever, exposing how she beautifully pronounces whole notes and conquers the distortion in the song’s rockier shift. “I Don’t Know” will serve as an invigorating conclusion to her upcoming “mini album,” Fade Away, due October 22nd. –Sam Willett
