Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino talks about her 'O.G. famous internet cat,' Snacks

“Cat lady” used to be a label that was not meant as a compliment. But now, cats are all the rage, partly thanks to the stars who won’t stop talking about their furry friends. Taylor Swift’s obsession with cats is well known at this point: She frequently posts photos of her cats, Olivia Benson and Meredith, on Instagram and recently starred in a Diet Coke commercial flooded with felines. There’s also Katy Perry’s Kitty Purry, a cat that became famous for that perfect name and her cameo in the “I Kissed a Girl” video.

But before Kitty Purry, and before Olivia Benson, there was Snacks.


Iggy Pop and Bethany Cosentino on 'True Blood'-approved duet -- Hear it here!

This is a pretty strange story, even by True Blood‘s standards.

Influential Los Angeles radio station KCRW premiered a new collaboration between famed Detroit protopunk Iggy Pop and Best Coast’s Spin covergirl Bethany Cosentino called “Let’s Boot and Rally.”

The new cut’s snaking guitars and Cali surf-rock vibes strike an interesting balance between the two artists’ respective styles, though given Best Coast’s recent taste for the subdued melancholy, the song tilts toward Iggy.

What really makes it intriguing, though, is that the song was co-written by KCRW DJ and True Blood music supervisor Gary Calamar and composer James Combs — plus the fact that it will be featured in the HBO program this Sunday.

Writes Calamar:

“Each episode is named after a song that is used in that show. We had a situation where we had an episode called ‘Boot and Rally’ but we really didn’t have a song that was True Bloody enough to use. What to do. Should we change the title of the episode? I suggested that maybe we can have someone write a new song called ‘Boot and Rally’…..Everyone agreed to give it a try and I started brainstorming.”
