    It seems almost impossible to just start writing about Tweens without first addressing the band's name, so [insert snarky comment about band's name here.] Tweens are from Cincinnati and they make punky garage pop that they call "trash pop." It's a style that probably has a pretty low ceiling in terms of mass consumption, but since it's done this well and is backed by Frenchkiss Records (The Antlers, Bloc Party, Les Savy Fav, The Drums, The Hold Steady), Tweens have a good shot of being a standout act in the 2014 indie circuit.
