REVIEW: Tweens - "Forever" track leak (French Kiss)

We're on the edge of our seats awaiting the debut 12" from Cincinati's Tweens on French Kiss Records in April.  Our appetite for trash pop destruction has been somewhat satiated by the few tracks that the label has leaked.  The latest is a romantic, ballsy, epic number titled "Forever" and its pure magic.  Bridget's voice embodies the pensive emotion of a young person reading the book of love for the first time and trying to make sense of its twisted and convoluted plot line.  For my buck its one of the best female voices in rock n' roll today (Shannon of Shannon and the Clams would be high on that list too).  Peyton and Jerri pulsate together like a couple of dudes that have played in bands together their whole lives which makes sense cuz that's what they've done (check out their band Vacation....their shit is cool).  Overall this track is like an updated version of a Bangles or Go-Go's record.  Its 100% pure garage pop gold.  Can't wait to hear the rest of the album!  Get it (on April 8) here.
