EP Review: Mean Tom

Title:  Mean Tom (BandCamp)
Artist:  Teen Mom (Facebook, Twitter, BandCamp, SoundCloud)

Washington D.C.’s Teen Mom’s debut EP Mean Tom is a fuzzy, shoegazer-y collection of indie pop numbers.  The vocals are breathy, the bass and drums are sparse, and the guitars are pure surfy fuzz.  One can hear hints of My Bloody Valentine and The Jesus & Mary Chain on Mean Tom, but the band that Teen Mom really reminds me of is The Ocean Blue.  Fans of the fuzzier side of indie pop/rock should give Teen Mom a listen.
