Rock Feedback ( Tiny Masters of Today) - Skeltons (Mute)

By Holly Eells

Tiny Masters of Today - SkeletonsFlabbergasted is the first word that came to my mind when I plugged in to the Tiny Masters of Today. Rolling back to what I was doing at the ages of 13 and 15, I really dread to measure up.

This teenage garage punk ensemble is somewhat quite rare in this day of living especially going from releasing homemade recordings on a MySpace page to being remixed by CSS. Oh, and did I mention collaborating with the one and only Karen-O? No? How is that even possible?

These young Brooklyn siblings are extremely talented and they have not let any of their skills go to waste. The first single on the album 'Drop the Bomb', is a perfect track to draw you in to what these kids have to offer, though elsewhere 'Pop Chart' is a catchy little number, which gets the toes tapping and is now available on 7" and download. I would very much advise you to go check this record out, and if you like it, the rest of Skeletons won't disappoint. Even David Bowie's calling them geniuses.

It's amazing what such a young pair can do.
