The 25 Best Album Covers of 2012

8. Best Coast, The Only Place

Label: Mexican Summer
Art Director: Dan Schechter, David Black, Jess Rotter

The California duo, Best Coast pays great homage to their home state on their second studio album with a cover displaying a brown bear physically embracing the Golden State. It was originally derived from the original sheet music for "I Love You, California" (the official state song).

For eleven tracks on The Only Place, Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno do much of the same, presenting sunny California hooks and a more polished sound, aided by producer Jon Brion.
