It’s only April and Brooklyn’s Teen Demon has had an extremely prolific 2012. Since January, the duo has already dropped four EPs, each of them tweaking the project’s sound just a bit.
These two new 7″s have been released simultaneously, and each has its own personality. “Mean Screamin’” seems to be mostly filled with just that: Primally grunted lyrics against some brutally intense riffing. It’s pure, unadulterated aggression with no particular target. Imagine a mad gorilla wildly swinging its arms in every direction, smashing anything in its path.
“Clean Dreamin’” is a bit more coherent by design. Its four tracks are intelligible, precise punk-infused indie rock tunes with a lot of gusto.
