teen suicide’s first & only proper album, ‘i will be my own hell because there is a devil inside my body’, has been a sought after release for many collectors after it’s ultra-limited vinyl release in 2012. Now, Run For Cover Records will be reissuing my own hell, with remastered audio, expanded artwork and 8 never-before-issued bonus tracks. Across the album’s 10 songs, the band displays a knack for different sounds and styles. Intimate, keyboard driven tracks like ‘cop graveyard’ and ‘grim reaper’ sit beside more energetic full-band outings like ‘dead bird skeleton and ‘give me back to the sky’, the latter even adding an evocative viola, piano and choral arrangement to it’s chaotic center. It’s to the band’s credit that their more outré moments feel necessary, not distracting. What becomes clear upon listening to ‘my own hell’ is that beneath the dreamy haze & noisy apathy of teen suicide’s recordings exist ernest, extremely well-written pop songs that reflect and express the uncertainty and desperation of reality.
