Teenage Tasteless

“Some music is just a journey and then after awhile of listening – you end up gone with the wind. Hailing from Berlin, Teenage Tasteless brings you the sounds from their new album, “Bartan Shumak.” A dark electronic mix of six extensive tracks, bringing you all kinds of goodies, (not too sour, not too sweet, just about everything for the normal taste buds.) Let me just say, if you’ve ever liked anything that we have released this is a definite ‘must-have-album’. Teenage Tasteless brings us a fresh aftertaste, with electronic sounds of dark-chocolate echos, layered on top of bitter drones that twist, shout and purr. A few piano chords, drum machines and the fundamentals of haunted solo singing voice will at times accompany the blends in the album. A couple of the tracks push beyond 12 minutes, and will have several movements to the song, still bringing together the whir and the buzz of something new and beautiful to the diversity of a completed noise mix. Its a dark, tried and true sound, pushing the instruments until they finally distort within the coalescence and end with a somber harmony and a lasting impression.”
