New Teen album due in March. Their pastiche is so amped-up that it stands apart from other similar bands.

TEEN's debut single "better" is one of my favourite pieces of music from the past 5? 10? years

so it makes me sad to say: this song sucks

TEEN's entire Love Yes album was kind of incredible and yeah this is nowhere near that level

two months pass...

is there a 2019 thread yet? the Self Esteem record is sounding fucking great so far

the abovementioned Teen album is out today, I'm slightly nervous to check it

on third listen I like the Self Esteem record a whole lot, especially for how thoroughly unhip and unconcerned with sounding current it is (but also not self-consciously retro or whatever). it's smarter than it seems at first, too - "Girl Crush" for example is actually a repudiation of that term. it could probably stand to have lost a couple of tunes, but nothing drags individually.

I'll check it shortly! Teen was a massive disappointment tbh - they've ditched the non-sister and clearly lost any of her moderating influence, freeing them up to make a bad album

obsessed with the self esteem album, especially its singles

further listens have revealed it to be somewhat frontloaded

eight months pass...

I have come across this apparently ungooglable band from compiling music at the end of 2019, I know nothing at all about them, videos seem to have very few views indeed.

They are called "Ice Cream"

Does anyone know anything about them?

Appears they’re from Toronto; I found a tranche of info with a little googling: http://exclaim.ca/amparticle/ice_cream_return_with_new_single_peanut_butter

sean gramophone, Wednesday, 1 January 2020 00:26 (one month ago) link

Now I have a new favorite band.
