Teen Suicide // Goblin Problems
They’re back. Again. Sam had been teasing the release of the EP Goblin Problems for a while now, then he decided that today was as good a day as any to drop it. And since my blog has become Sam’s personal cheerleading squad for over two years now I figured I’d add another two cents on the fuzz punk troublemakers known as Teen Suicide.
Sam remains an interesting online presence. I told him that Teen Suicide is noise pop for people who don’t like noise pop. Plus they chose a purposefully offensive name for the project; one that many people would ignore without even checking out the music were it not for the fact that it’s by the (in)famous Sam Ray. But for all his quirks and his ADHD-riddled Tumblr page, Sam remains one of today’s finest songwriters. If you were never sure how seriously to take him, do yourself a favor and let the music speak for itself. He and Teen Suicide’s under-acknowledged other half Eric Livingston are doing their best to absolutely own 2012 and Goblin Problems is just another step in making that goal a reality.
