From The Desk Of Imperial Teen: My New Madsen Bike

Imperial Teen has been around for longer than you think; roughly 15 years to be exact. Wielding its own distinct brand of pop/rock, the quartet has since crafted a solid niche for itself on the indie scene, particularly thanks to the experience of seasoned pros Will Schwartz, Roddy Bottum, Jone Stebbins and Lynn Truell. Known for its complex lyrics and catchy hooks, Imperial Teen has made a solid mark in the music world during its run, especially with new album Feel The Sound (Merge). We decided to test that experience by inviting the band to guest edit all week. Read our brand new Q&A with Schwartz.

Truell: Well, I almost have it. And I am positive it will quickly become one of my favorite things. These bikes are cool; a long frame with a bucket on the back with removable bench seats and seat belts. You can tote a kid or two, groceries, a picnic, the dog, lots of drinks on ice, a friend in need. This is much funner than a car to take on short neighborhood errands. Also, total fun for family bike rides.
