CMU Approved

Approved: TEEN

So, Carpark Records-signed girl quartet TEEN – aka Here We Go Magic bassist Kristina ‘Teeny’ Lieberson’s semi-eponymous band when she’s not in HWGM – are all set to release a new LP.

It trails 2012’s ‘In Limbo’, a bright start to Lieberson et al’s collaboration (especially straight-faced sass-rally ‘Come Back’ and the beautifully pallid ‘Why Why Why’), albeit one that at times tapered off and ran slightly thin.

Whilst nearly half the tracks on that LP lasted… well… too long, really, TEEN’s new one ‘Carolina’ is excellent – light, pithy and crisp – creating, as Liberson phrases it, “a different kind of conversation between instruments” where on ‘In Limbo’ gaps and procrastinative ‘vamping’ might’ve been.
