Teen

Don't judge a book by it's cover. Or in this case, don't judge a band by it's name. Teen is a poor name and one that should be Googled with care, but their debut album , 'In Limbo', is a fine piece of work and is on heavy rotation round these parts. Kristina 'Teeny' Lieberson, a former member of  Here We Go Magic, put the band together with her two sisters plus Jane Herships, who also performs under the Spider moniker. There are five of 'em in the video, but information is scant, so the fifth part of the puzzle is un-named for the time-being. It's poppy, it's mournful, it's light, it's dark and it's produced by Sonic Boom of Spacemen 3.

Here are two contrasting cuts - see what you think.

I like. Nice early indie vibe, sort of Cherry Red/Rough Trade type band from about '82, on first track. Bit Stereolab, too? Are the British? Very promising.

They're American, from Brooklyn, which, along with Portland Oregon seems to account for about 95% of US bands. Must be something in the water.
