The Donnas - The Donnas, forever gunning at a harder, sharper version of prototype punks like The Ramones; Best Coast echoing the Beach Boys in their happy days; the two groups overlapping on key points: devotion to their influences, punk-divaness, and really liking boys. Plus, bloggers would have a field-day with stupid references to "the ultimate girl group." It'd be fun.
The Shins - Some would roll their eyes, it being a little too meat and potatoes for these two to hook up after each releasing their most mature, melancholy records to date. The result would be primed for a Target back-to-school commercial: inoffensive, and extremely pleasant.
Those Darlins - Bethany wants to be country, she make it a point telling the press in regards to The Only Place. Her voice—warm and rounded and always slightly sad—suits the vision well. Touring partners Those Darlins want to be country too, kicking the genre into high gear with reckless, punk-leaning energy. There they are, all traveling around together on the tour bus. Get to work, ya'll.
Kitty Pryde - Here we imagine something in line with that Converse plug Bethany did a few summers ago with Kid Cudi and Rostam from Vampire Weekend, chock-full of references to pop culture and, well, Converse. But this would definitely be about boys and never make it past the Internet.
Wavves - We haven't heard much in regards to Twitter's power couple in some time, which has us worried. Maybe a new duet (one already exists, if you recall) would help rekindle the fire. (We'd also really like to see her work with Ty Segall, for whatever that's worth.)
Stevie Nicks - The go-to choice, given Bethany's on-record obsession with all things Fleetwood Mac. Think of all the tweets we'd out of it, from her and from us.
