"I'm leaving you/I'm goin' home" sings Jenny Lewis on "Let Me Back In," a kiss off with tap-dance percussion that doubles as love song to Los Angeles, and triples as a belated farewell to a band that was putting post-Elliott Smith L.A. indie-pop on the map back when Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino was still a New York magazine intern. It's a sad farewell, as this mostly filler-free set of outtakes, demos and b-sides reconfirms. It's full of wittily barbed lyrics, fat guitar hooks, charming Hollywood cowgirl feints ("Bury Bury Bury Another"), and a wildly dubious rap made even nuttier by a Too $hort cameo (a remix of the notorious "Dejalo.") Raise your beer, and shed a tear.
