my love for ohio-based bedroom poppers teengirl fantasy has been well documented. after lapping up the blog love for the past year and change, they’re finally releasing their debut album 7 AM sept. 14 on true panther.
this is the first track to be heard from it, the sample-driven disco epic “cheaters” that, alas, does not appear to be inspired by the joey grecco-hosted trash fest in any way. nevertheless, it demands a listen or three.
teengirl fantasy is the project of ohio-based college students logan takahashi and nick weiss. they specialize in spliced up, blissed out bedroom pop that’s equal parts chillwave and shoegaze. in other words, dreeeeeeeamy.
i’ve actually been doing a bit of an illusive dance with these guys for quite a while now. i kept stumbling across myriad remixes they’ve done for other artists i’m into but only just came across their 2009 CD-R. not sure how i missed it before. even the new york times likes them for christ’s sake.
their official debut LP is due this summer on true panther. i’ll be sure not to let that one slip past me. in the meantime, here’s a standout from their CD-R. think pictureplane sampling madvillain remixed by neon indian. yeah, exactly.
memoryhouse – lately (teengirl fantasy natural mix)
light asylum – shallow tears (teengirl fantasy big room mix)
pictureplane – new mind (teengirl fantasy wide open edit)
