Rookie | » Make Some Noise – Ali Koehler talks about songwriting, Riot Grrrl, and Rock Band

“I first noticed Ali Koehler several years ago, when she was drumming for the Brooklyn lo-fi punk band Vivian Girls. Last year she left that band to play with Best Coast, the laid-back California outfit led by the cat aficionado and genius Bethany Cosentino. That’s when I really fell in love with Ali’s playing. Those two bands are so different musically (Vivian Girls are best listened to in your bedroom, playing air guitar; Best Coast is great on a lazy summer car ride), but Ali is some kind of crazy percussion chameleon, capturing the spirit of both of them equally well.(…)”
