Crazy for You is the debut album by American indie rock trio Best Coast, released July 27, 2010 on Mexican Summer. The album was recorded by vocalist and songwriter Bethany Cosentino and musical partner Bobb Bruno, and was produced by Lewis Pesacov of Fool's Gold and Foreign Born. The album was released after a series of EPs that brought the band to underground notoriety with songs such as "The Sun Was High (So Was I)" and "When I'm with You", the latter being included in this release as a bonus track. The album artwork was created by David Rager and includes Bethany's cat Snacks, alongside many references to the state of California.[4][5] The lyrics deal mostly with romance and relationships, with Cosentino describing them to Pitchfork Media as "about weed and my cat and being lazy a lot."[6] The album was made available for streaming on July 12 at Urban Outfitters.[7] Crazy for You was well received by music critics.[8]

Crazy for You received a nod from Exclaim! as their No. 6 pick for Top Pop & Rock Albums of 2010.[20] Ian Gormely said "fuzzed out lo-fi recordings are all the rage, but Bethany Cosentino rises above her peers on her Best Coast debut, striking the perfect balance between reverb-drenched vocals and classic California pop hooks."

The album was also named the 39th best album of 2010 by Pitchfork Media.[21]

In October 2011, NME placed "Boyfriend" at number 49 on its list "150 Best Tracks of the Past 15 Years".[22]

Drew Barrymore directed a music video for the sixth track "Our Deal" on the album. It included actors such as Chloë Grace Moretz (Kick Ass, Let Me In), Tyler Posey (Teen Wolf), Miranda Cosgrove (School of Rock, iCarly) and Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development, Whip It). Donald Glover (Derrick Comedy, Community, Childish Gambino) also makes a cameo.
