Longtime venerated underground antiheroes Teen Suicide have released a steady stream of advance singles off their upcoming full-length (at its most extreme meaning with 26 tracks) It’s The Big Joyous Celebration, Let’s Stir The Honeypot, and a few days ahead of its due date the whole thing is available to stream. We’ve already heard the “Alex,” “The Stomach Of The Earth,” and “The Big Joyous Celebration,” but that’s only just over a tenth of the album, so there is plenty more subtle shoegazing, rhythmic strumming, and infectious grooves to be enjoyed.
This album is very appropriately named: It’s certainly big, but the celebration vibes are palpable. Whether bringing the energy up or down, leaning folk or psych or prog, incorporating classical flourishes or simply indulging in a shred fest, it’s just four friends jamming out, and that’s what registers most. Celebrate with the Maryland boys as they get their Pooh bear on.
