Format: Audio CD
Tweens is a up-and-coming trio from Cincinnati, consisting of singer-guitarist Bridget Battle, drummer Jerri Queen and bassist Peyton Copes. After a couple of early self-released songs as well as infectious live shows (earning invitations to open for bands like the Breeders and Black Lips), record labels quickly came knocking on the door, and the band last year signed with French Kiss. Now comes the band's debut album. If you are not familiar with the band's sound, think riot grrrl punk-pop, reminding me of early Yeah Yeah Yeahs (but faster), among others.

"Tweens" (11 tracks; 34 min.) starts with a blazing "Bored In the City", with the genius line courtesy of Battle, "I'm too young to be this tired", ha! It's one of the best tracks on the album. "McMicken" (named after a well-known street in Cincinnati) is the only track on here not written by Battle (it comes from drummer Jerry Queen), and goes even faster (and harder) than the opening track. "Be Mean" is only of those early songs, and could be considered the band's standard-setting song. Things slow down a bit on the instrumental "Stoner", as if to give us (and the band as well) a quick breather. "Don't Wait Up For Me' is another favorite of mine on here, with the instrumentation being just perfect. "Girlfriend" makes clear that Battle is not interested in being a girlfriend (anyone's?). "Forever" is about as straight-up a pop song as you will find on here (and the single from the album--check out the hilarious but wonderful video). "Star Studder" is the album's logical cap-off. In all, this is quite the promising album!

As I live in Cincinnati, I've had the chance to see these guys perform a number of times over the last year or so, and the Tweens experience is not complete without having seen them live. If you have a chance to catch them in concert at some point, do not miss them! Meanwhile, "Tweens" is a promising debut album, and I can't wait to see where they'll go next.

What the Tweens call "trash pop" I would call rough garage punk. I first became aware of the Tweens thanks to Jensen Karps podcast Get Up On This. I Immediately sought out their debut album. I was not disappointed. Only listen if you like your music rad.

imagine if the gals from L7 channeled their inner "Go-Go's" instead of going the grunge route; that is what the "tweens" remind me of. nothing not to like on this effort- catchy,messy,garagey .... just plug in and get ready to bounce!
