    Teenage and Torture unfurls a range of styles.

    Her deranged aura aside, the second full-length from this New York group is a brainy and brawny hybrid.

    Much like the disordered thought patterns that come before sleep, dream-like backing vocals and twangy instrumentals transport us into another reality.

    Ms. Ray isn't shy about unleashing her raspy howl or working up to a shriek. Yet behind all the hollering and the band's frenetic buildups it's not all comedy. Ms. Ray's songs zero in on all the contradictory pressures women face: to be cosmetically perfect but authentic, independent but nurturing, flippant but honest, and more.

    There's a doomed pall hanging over much of Teenage and Torture. [Year End 2010, p.75]
