Teens new album Only Water available here on Vinyl and CD.
The Lieberson sisters—Teeny, Lizzie, and Katherine—have with their fourth album crafted a dynamic a hook-stuffed take on the oft-trodden breakup album and as on prior releases there are frequent meditations on death, capitalism, and womanhood. While recording Good Fruit, the sisters employed a self-described “reductive approach,” strove to create space within their songs, and, for their first time, self-produced the album. These techniques explode the glistening, sprinting glamour of “Only Water,” a deceptively upbeat number about death and the loss of a loved one. They inform Good Fruit’s handful of ballads too, including “Pretend,” which rings with a vast, unsettling static fuzz even as Lizzie beautifully recounts the disappointment of realizing a partner wasn’t all she’d built them up to be.
