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

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
