Singer Teenie Lieberson, her two sisters and another pal convened last year in Brooklyn with one apparent mission: Imagine space rock as it might've sounded before the moon landing, in the time of girl groups and garage bands. Their first full-length grooves on the easy symmetry of unfussy harmonies and dead-simple, no-hurry guitar, drum, and keyboard parts well buttered with reverb. (Pete Kember, of the echo-happy Spacemen 3, produced.) Teenie, formerly of Here We Go Magic, lays the retro-innocence on a little heavy, ruminating over frenching "too many men." But between the matter-of-fact beauty of her sweetly somber voice and the album's unapologetically fat synths, even a track like "Huh," with its distinctly unpromising title, proves highly evocative.

    “Long Walk Home”

    Bruce Springsteen | 2007

    When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
