"Members of Tenement & ex-Harlequin Kid making some noisy syrupy sounding shoegaze/psych inspired tunes here. These gents from Appleton, WI must be some busy folks as it seems Iím always seeing notifications on Facebook or whatever for shows of different bands that feature members of Tenement. The combination of styles on Teenage Pagans seems so obvious, but itís a wonder why more bands donít necessarily head in this direction. Instead of drifting into full blown MBV worship like most, the guys of Technicolor Teeth take the 90ís indie-rock and pop/punk elements of the other projects theyíve spent time in and work it into a wonderfully loud blend of noise and melody. It rides a fine line between the woozy and fuzz laden noise of the heyday of shoegaze and the sort of pop/punk song craft that makes a band like Tenement so enticing and wellÖfun. Occasionally the band will settle into a nice murky, and somewhat grungy, sludge like sound that certainly has traces ofgrime to it, but they seem to have their hands in many different areas. One main thing that Iíve come to really appreciate about Teenage Pagans is the way that the band shies away from sticking with or getting sucked into riding a particular riff for terribly long. One of the biggest downfalls I find with most shoegaze revivalist groups is that they are mostly a one trick pony and that ten songs of hearing the same damn thing over and over again is somehow interesting. Technicolor Teeth seem to be fully aware of these potential pitfalls and steer clear by doing incredibly well in mixing things up, managing to apply the sugary textures when necessary to keep a general style here, but willing to risk it by trying something a bit different from track to track. Most the tunes are short and sweet, but generally pack a number of surprises along the way. Absolutely amped to hear what these guys do in the future." - builtonaweakspot.com
