Kristina ‘Teeny” Lieberson was originally the keyboardist for Brooklyn band Here We Go Magic, but ever since she recruited her sister Katharine and Lizzie and friend Jane Herships for her own project, we’ve been hearing more of her psychedelic side. Appropriately naming the band TEEN , these four ladies have been churning out summer ditties drenched in garage-punk undertones and waves of reverb. Their “Little Doods” EP laid the foundation down for their full-length debut “In Limbo” (engineered by fellow ex-Here We Go Magic member Jen Turner, who has resurfaced in L.A. with Thrillionaire ), and they’ve recently [...]
This Sunday is our annual Father's Day Kids Dance Party -- with DJ sets from Kid Hops and DJ Rhythma, dancing with the Vicious Puppies crew, crafts and more -- but the kids don't get to have all the fun, as there's plenty of great music in clubs this week. On Monday, Portland's Black Prairie play at the Triple Door. Free Energy rocks the Tractor on Tuesday, while New Orleans indie popsters Generationals play there the next night. Also on Wednesday, a stellar lineup of Eleanor Friedberger , The Bats , and [...]
“Is this your ticket to paradise?” TEEN frontwoman Teeny Lieberson asks on “Paradise,” the second track from the Brooklyn quartet’s latest EP, Carolina. From their youth-oriented name to their bright, expansive sound, TEEN seem willing and able to make all your dreams come true. Still, though, there are small hints of shadow on Carolina; a subtle, yet thoroughly sharp edge that strikes when you least expect it. By the end of “Paradise,” Lieberson has added an intriguing follow-up to her original question: “It’s your ticket to paradise/Then why are you already dead?” Soon, the track burns [...]
Teen returns after their first LP release with a brand new EP for 2013: a continuation of In Limbo with more psychedelic rock combined with an electric feel. The five track EP showcases a more well-defined sound, with a range ... Continued
I don’t want to compare TEEN to the Dirty Projectors for fear of people thinking they’re a DP sound-alike, or evoking thoughts of TEENS as unoriginal, for neither of these things are true, but there are certain aspects of TEEN and Dirty Projectors that are certainly worth comparing. Firstly, they both have killer songs featuring [...]
Flowers: that's the physical theme of Brooklyn indie pop outfit TEEN's new video for the title track from the Carolina EP they released last month. The video follows performance artist Megha Barnabas, who also holds director credits, as she prances through crowded areas handing flowers to various individuals. With the attire to fit, a vibrantly colored dress covered entirely in flower patterns, Barnabas' image is eccentric yet inviting. Perhaps the most rewarding moments in the clip are those in which the camera shows the reactions of those whom Barnabas approaches, which range from genuinely enthusiastic facial expressions of [...]
New York lo-fi rock band TEEN returns with "Carolina", a colourful music video for the title track from their latest EP. It's out now via Carpark Records The post TEEN present new music video "Carolina" appeared first on Nothing But Hope And Passion - NBHAP - Music Magazine & more .
Like the rise of the synth, psychedelic music has taken the indie music scene by storm in recent years. TEEN are no different, crafting lush and vibrant psych-pop straight outta Brooklyn (where you can throw a stone and easily hit 11 psych bands). Still, they demonstrate keen progressiveness with their new EP, Carolina , a "more natural" collection of songs they hoped could be more readily translated live. But beyond that aim, the five-track effort is an exhilarating take on more standardized psych-pop. What makes their blend of psych-pop [...]
photo via Stereogum TEEN have shared the video for title track to their new EP, which is available now via Capark. "Carolina" follows performance art/expressionist Megha Barnabas as she ventures around NYC hotspots with a bouquet of roses. The best part of the video is her crazy dance, featuring awesome arm choreography, in Times Square. [ Stereogum ] Young Fathers is one of those groups that doesn't just fit into [...]
This week's top clips tended toward the brighter, flipper side of things. Because summer, probably! But before we dive into the quirk and laughs, there's a short filmic clip by a film director that is somewhat crushing. And then it's all roses, dancing congregations, and bouncing asses for days. Step this way for a roundup of the week's finest clips: Read More...
The title-track to TEEN's Carolina EP gets a video today, directed by and starring the performance art/body expressionist Megha Barnabas. She also directed TEEN's outstanding "Electric" video (alongside Stand Clear Of The Closing Doors filmmaker Sam Fleischner), so there is a strong history already, but this one's decidedly more Megha-centric. The results are, rosy: Flowers decorate her dress and bundle in her arms as she visits NYC's symbolic sites and epicenters, offering blossoms to suits, coasting on "Carolina"'s kraut-laced reverie until a climactic psychedelic freakout in Times Square, [...]
TEEN - "Carolina" Following the release of TEEN's new EP Carolina, the band has released a video for the title track featuring performance artist Megha Barnabas dancing through Manhattan and passing out roses...

The quartet better known as TEEN released their debut LP In Limbo last fall, putting their track "Better" on best songs of 2012 lists across the boards. It also landed them a position on Time Magazine's "11 Great Bands You Don't Know (But Should)" and Stereogum's "Band to Watch," among others. Following the critical success of the In Limbo the band, comprised of Teeny Lieberson (vocals, multi-instrumentalist), Katherine Lieberson (drums), Lizzie Lieberson (keyboard) and Jane Herships (bass), have returned with a new five track EP. The Carolina EP serves as a [...]

Las bandas familiares, en especial las compuestas por hermanas, cada vez son más comunes en este año. Primero, y hasta el momento las que comienzan a despegar muy alto son las Haim, sí, lo mencionamos mucho, pero de verdad fue sorprendente verlas en SXSW; por otro lado las hermanas Calvin, o Bleached, quienes realizan un [...]
Week's Top Releases The Albums You Need to Know About Every Week This week's release lineup feels somewhat like the calm after the storm given the insane hype of last week. There are records on this list, though, that deserve equal measures of praise, if not more. The first two from Baths and Mount Kimbie are both sophomore releases, yet they leap and bound above most music I've heard this year. Baths' electro-pop [...]
Brooklyn’s TEEN follow up last year’s full length In Limbo with the Carolina EP, a sure-footed step forward.
