Biography

Any great band evolves. And so even though TEEN had certainly made some excellent, acclaimed music in their first few years of existence, they knew they were still discovering their voice — in more than one sense of the word.

TEEN have found that voice on their brilliant second album, The Way and Color, one reason why it’s such a stunning creative breakthrough. ... Read more in Amazon's TEEN Store

Editorial Reviews

Brooklyn's TEEN came together when Teeny Lieberson, formerly of Here We Go Magic, left her post in the latter band in order to make music with her two sisters and two longtime friends. Recorded during the summer of 2011 in a converted barn in rural Connecticut, In Limbo puts pop and tribal elements to the fore. The density and layers of the band's morphing keyboards, driving synths and jungle drums let their finely arranged vocals sit gloriously on top, each member's contribution shining through. In Limbo was mixed and produced in collaboration with Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3, Spectrum).

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant debut album, but even better live September 30, 2012
Format:Audio CD
TEEN is an all-girls indie-rock band from New York, fronted by ex-Here We Go Magic member Teeny Lieberson. Upon leaving Magic, Teeny recruited her sisters Lizzie and Katherine as well as Jane Herships to form TEEN. If you are not familiar with their sound, think experimental dream pop, not unlike, say, Beach House-meets-the Vivian Girls. The band released an EP called "Little Doods" in 2011.

"In Limbo" (11 tracks; 56 min.) is the band's debut album and kicks off with the very catchy "Better", with lots of synthesizers upfront. "Come Back" is an equally uptempo track. A 6 min. slow jam "Charlie" is next, which then is followed by "Electric", my favorite track on here, which seems to be the sweet spot where singer-songwriter Teeny Lieberson finds the perfect spot between the pop and the experimental side of things. The short title track closes the first half of the album, which I rate 4.5 stars. The second half of ther album is more uneven, even though it starts off with the excellent, brooding "Sleep Is Noise". Another highlight is the 6 min. psychedelic-reminding "Why Why Why", with plenty of reverb in the sound. In all, I rate the second half of the album 3.5 stars.

While a bit overlong for its own good (I'd cut the weakest 2 songs), this is nevertheless a pleasant debut album, and I will be interested to see where the Lieberson sisters go from here. I had the good fortune of catching TEEN in concert recently at the MidPoint Music Festival here in Cincinnati, and the foursome put on a great 45 min. set, playing nothing but tracks from this album, each of these songs sounding harder live than on the album. Meanwhile, "In Limbo" is highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Muddy Existential Crossroad October 28, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Reaction to 'In Limbo' has been mixed. I think that TEEN's 'In Limbo' is a noteworthy achievement and one that rises well above merely having its little charms. Kristina (Teeny) Lieberson IS a refreshingly thoughtful and attentive artist that (1) demands a very deliberate listen and (2) has a stubborn streak. This LP represents a severe reaction to the pervasiveness of vacuity and the tyranny of "sameness". That is, it is fed up with the bull**** of a life and a social reality that is relentlessly tethered to the deceits and conceits of entropy.

Stylistically the LP waxes and wanes starting in the late 50's to early 60's and seems to be disinterested in anything much past the 1980's. Some songs are grounded, by obvious pop music signifiers, in their own narrow range of time. Thus, certain songs have the feel of a period piece. TEEN has a strong and flexible(!) sense of sonic composition that gets the most out of its available talent. Regardless of the imperatives of any song's style (and this LP offers a rich variety!), I'm always left with the impression that the authors' relationship with the style is organic. The LP has only one power hook, one that blatantly recalls Blondie, and it is sustained through a large part of the last half of 'Electric'. It soars triumphantly against the glowering stream of this entire affair.

Ms. T. Lieberson has a lovely and resourceful voice that invites any number of lazy comparison. It's jarring how her voice can contrast with this sullen depection. Above my appreciation for her voice is my appreciation for how the accompanying vocals are used. Ms. T. Lieberson can be going on about some epoch ending instance of anguish while her companions whimsically flutter in and out of the her narrative field.
