Señor Boombox

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jesse Jarnow
The Disco Biscuits' fourth studio album, Señor Boombox, is an eclectic mix of jam band songwriting approaches, all realized with a sparkling sometimes antiseptic studio precision. The album is not without its charm. Guitarist Jon Gutwillig's two contributions, "Jigsaw Earth" and "Hope," are both soaringly beautiful.

The Disco Biscuits' fourth studio album, Señor Boombox, is an eclectic mix of jam band songwriting approaches, all realized with a sparkling sometimes antiseptic studio precision. The album is not without its charm. Guitarist Jon Gutwillig's two contributions, "Jigsaw Earth" and "Hope," are both soaringly beautiful. Sam Altman's "Sound One" is a cartoonishly complex miniature epic. The album is framed by a pair of excursions into the organic style of electronic music the band focused on across 2001's They Missed the Perfume, "Float Like a Butterfly" and an aimlessly ambient unlabeled bonus track. More confusing are the sound effects tracks that serve as preludes to a number of songs. At first, they would seem to act as segues between tracks, but they begin too abruptly to serve as transitions. The album is a joy through headphones, though sometimes the band's embellishments seem a little bit too much, such as the hideous gospel peak of "The Tunnel" and the over-the-top guitar wanking that caps "Floes." The band's forced attitude on the faux-Beastie Boys "Floodlights" and to a lesser extent, "Triumph" is charming, but can wear quickly.
