New Discovery: Teens
I love garage rock, I love surf rock, and I love punk rock. It should come as no surprise that I'm delighted to find a young band that combines two or more of those elements. Boise, Idaho's Teens combines all three. Teens are David Wood (guitar/vocals), Gabriel Rudow (bass/vocals), Christopher Kolody (guitar/vocals), and Dustin McFadden-Elliot (drums). They recorded their debut, Teens, in an underground bomb shelter outside of town with two mics and less than professional equipment. It has a bit of the old Black Lips loose energy, and if they can produce Teens under those circumstances, I think they can make a splash.
