Released: June 2010
The kind of genius Bethany Cosentino displayed was a deceptively simple one: classic songwriting tropes featuring an undercurrent of grunge, brought together all with the endless Californian summer shimmer of Brian Wilson. ‘Boyfriend’ was part teenage longing and part womanly angst (“She’s prettier and skinnier, she got a college degree,”), whilst the guitars chimed together like Phil Spector’s in-house band. It was the timeless quality of the track that made it feel like it could have been made at any point during rock and roll’s 60-year history. (PE)
