This Is Our Jam: Teen Witch, "I Don't Mind"

Considering the levels of over-saturation that garage rock has reached these past few years, it’s impressive that Teen Witch ’s guitar, drums, vocals approach is so immediate and pleasing. This is largely due to the rugged chemistry between long-time pals / Bay Area to Brooklyn transplants Caroline Partamian (The Splinters) and Tyler McCauley (Tempo No Tempo) who have been making jubilant noisy rock in their past bands for years. On “I Don’t Mind” Caroline’s vocals oscillate between brickbat punk and Slumberland-pretty, with Tyler pointing to Butch Vig-era grunge as a key influence. While “I Don’t Mind”’ never reaches “Stay Away” levels of urgency, Teen Witch sets the bar high—hopefully the band will Top That in the future.
