Now that we’ve gotten our year-end lists out of the way, self-titled would like to share the thoughts of our favorite artists and labels. Here’s what Teeny Lieberson of TEEN had to say about her Top 5 albums:
Frank Ocean, Channel Orange (Def Jam)
It’s nice to hear a real songwriter with a real voice. His musicality is unreal and I can keep listening to it over and over again.
Tame Impala, Lonerism (Modular)
I can’t get enough of this band. So rich in melodies and full of amazing sounds. It gets pretty far out at times, which I really appreciate.
Fiona Apple, The Idler Wheel… (Epic)
Have always been a fan. It’s a hard listen at first, but she’s so emotionally raw on this record that I want to just go back and rediscover those intense moments.
Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Mature Themes (4AD)
Great songs, amazing hooks, totally bizarre. There’s no one like him and I always look forward to what’s coming up next.
Ty Segall Band, Slaughterhouse (In the Red)
I saw Sic Alps play a couple years ago and I remember thinking, “Who the fuck is that drummer? He’s amazing!” It was Ty Segall and I’ve been obsessed with him ever since. And his music rules too.
TEEN’s debut album, ‘In Limbo’, is available now through Carpark Records. Read the rest of our 2012 In Review coverage here, and check out a TEEN story from our fall issue below, along with a couple tracks:
