Cincinnati trio Tweens make garagey, nasally, punky pop that is equal parts rauccous and infectious. Songs like "Mean" and "Rattle&Rollin'" are both especially catchy and seem prime for a label like Burger that lives for this stuff. You can stream them below along with their "Live at Mohawk" EP that isn't actually live and features a bunch of girl group covers.

Tweens caught they ear of fellow Ohio resident Kim Deal who has tapped Tweens to open for a few Breeders shows, including Monday's sold-out show at Webster Hall (5/6). After that, Tweens will play Shea Stadium on Tuesday (5/7) which is a record release show for Japanther that also features Grand Rapids. Then at Pianos on Wednesday (5/8) with LODRO, Total Slacker and new Frenchkiss signees, Drowners. That show starts early -- LODRO is on at 7 PM -- and is FREE.

Tour dates are listed, with those streams, below.

tweens is one of the worst words ever created in the history of language. to name your band 'tweens' is a sure sign of a major lack of intelligence.
