    TEEN LIVE FROM PRAGUE

    Teen are not the easiest band to find using a Google search; try it, and you’ll see. However they do make some of the best Rock hooks that you’ll come across.The Brooklyn NY group consists of Kristina Lieberson, former keyboardist for the Brooklyn band Here We Go Magic, her two sisters Katherine and Lizzie and Jane Herships. They’ve been doing their thing since 2010; this live set illustrates their live pedigree.

    This set was recorded by Czech Radio-Wave for Eurosonic at Club 007, Prague on April 13, 2013.

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK - DELOREAN, SQUAREHEAD, & ELVIS COSTELLO & THE ROOTS

    The Spanish have brought us many great things throughout the history of the human race. While the sublime soccer skills of their national and club teams may spring to mind before music, that isn't to say that it hasn't given us the odd gem or two. Delorean have been penning classy tunes for many years, but ‘APAR’ showcases their pedigree at an even higher level.

    Squarehead are back bolder and better than ever with their second album ‘Respect’. Their hectic tour schedule has paid off; they've become a well oiled machine that will level audiences anywhere with tunes like these.

    ‘Wise Up Ghost And Other Songs’ sees an unlikely collaboration between Elvis Costello and The Roots. Surprising as the teaming might sound, it works remarkably well over the 12 tracks. Live dates I hear you say? Yes, this would be great – fingers crossed!
