Teen—the Brooklyn quartet of namesake Teeny Lieberson (formerly of Here We Go Magic), her sisters Lizzie and Katherine, and new bassist Boshra AlSaadi—has a sound that currently falls somewhere along the lines of fellow East Coasters Joan as Policewoman and Luscious Jackson. They're not necessarily brand new to this, with two full-lengths and two EPs to their credit—yet their latest, The Way and Color, feels like a beginning of sorts. Gone is most of the haze and guitar swirl of their past work, replaced with a cleaner, more polished sound said to be inspired by the likes of Erykah Badu and D'Angelo. It's the kind of mainstream pop re-appropriation that isn't unheard of these days (see White Hinterland's new record), but it works well for Teen, most notably on cuts like "Rose for U" and "Tied Up Tied Down."
