L.A. indie rockers Best Coast are back with "This Lonely Morning" off their upcoming EP Fade Away. The boppy surf-rock tune explores the hours, days and countless other times spent waiting for a certain someone to call, and the inevitable haze that comes when they don't.  

Where Does Best Coast's 'The Only Place' Rank on Our Best Albums of 2012 List?

The fast-paced track came organically to singer Bethany Cosentino, and ended up as a conduit for the new EP. "I wrote that song in literally five minutes, sitting in bed one morning, bored," Cosentino tells Rolling Stone. "That song kickstarted the writing for this record." 

Fade Away is due out on October 22nd and is available for pre-order here

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
