This garage-pop project of L.A.'s Bethany Cosentino and her musical partner Bobb Bruno laid down its debut LP mission statement with "Boyfriend": huge guitars and bigger romantic angst. But the track’s also a tip-off to Best Coast’s post-girl-group influences: It opens with a drum fill borrowed from the Boss's "Badlands." "That's an accidental homage to Springsteen," Cosentino says. "People think we ripped it off, but Bobb claims he had no idea. Now, every time I hear that song I can only think about myself, which p---es me off. I'd rather not think about myself when I'm listening to Bruce Springsteen."
