André Kertész: The Polaroids @ Silverstein Photography

on view October 18 ~ November 24

Silverstein Photography
535 West 24 Street
New York, NY, 10011

***Think we'll start posting about the exhibits, galleries, photography/contemporary art type things happening in New York and San Francisco that we come across and fall in love with. If you know anything that's going on in these two cities that are photography-related and worth checking out, please let us know. I don't know if I want to comment in these posts, because they'll start to sound repetitive partly, because I haven't been to that many galleries to have the right to say anything, but really these posts are more for you and it's up to you to visit the gallery if you wish to see more of the photographer's work. If the photographer is still working, we may provide links + maybe the tiniest bit of info later on. Or leave a comment/email and tell us what you want to know. But right now let's just let the photographs do the talking. Thanks.***

3 minute entry: The Teenagers

The Teenagers are playing their last show tonight of their tour with Crystal Castles and These New Puritans sponsored by Vice magazine, who has given them free rein to stumble around England, Scotland and other 'lands' playing free shows with special DJ guests! The tour's called UNITAUR, but that's winding down tonight at Goldsmith College. So if you're around, just sign up here and have fun. They've got more tour dates after playing Festival Des Inrocks in their old city, Paris and going back home to London for a show at Se One with Gods Average Speed. Then the trio will be swinging through Brazil and gracing us with a slew of major US cities and two Canadian stops sandwiched in the middle.

I was first hooked by The Teenagers' remix of Au Revoir Simone's "Fallen Snow" last year and their debut full-length is on its way to the finish line just waiting to trip up your feet. Just to name a few, they've remixed Simian Mobile Disco, Lo Fi Fink, Air, New Young Pony Club, Chromeo, etc, you can hear almost all of their remixes at The Teenagers' Remix MySpace. They've only released a couple of their own songs, but each and every one of them is perfect, meticulously stroked, and labored over, tweaked to the glowing songs they are, into well...pure gold! Their latest single just came out and it's called "Starlett Johansson". It's available on Merok Records and if you're lucky you can still purchase their previous singles and the Homecoming EP from Rough Trade Records.

Mostly, their songs are about what every stereotypical hormone-clogged teenager thinks about and yeah they're a little foul-mouthed, but these three guys are not apologetic about it. They make music for music's sake, and these guys know what they're doing or rather they don't really know or care, because they're just playing music for pure fun and maybe that's better than trying to dig deep in this land of talk/hype.
