Beatnik Filmstars - Boss Disque - 1997

Boss Disque could almost be called a departure from the Beatnik Filmstars' M.O. -- the white-noise-on-catchy-tunes ethic is still in effect (and we wouldn't have it any other way), but the record is smoothed over in an entirely tasteful manner, and actually seems to be written for the band's waves of tape hiss and fuzz. The result is the Filmstars' best record to this point -- 22 tracks of buzzy, reckless, yet oddly laid-back pop that's nearly impossible not to love. What's most interesting is that the process of honing the band's somewhat "difficult" sound has brought them to their most accessible release. -AMG
