Q&A: Carly Rae Jepsen On Her All-Star Indie Collaborators And Really, Really, Really Anticipated New Album

Following up a juggernaut like “Call Me Maybe” has got to be intimidating. There hasn’t been a song like that since, one that was so immediately pervasive and so utterly inescapable.

Tegan And Sara – “Walking With A Ghost (Manila Killa Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

Walking With A Ghost” — and its corresponding White Stripes cover — is arguably the song that catapulted Tegan And Sara to a new level of fame.

Tegan And Sara – “I Was A Fool (Chuck Inglish Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

The lighters-up mid-tempo piano ballad “I Was A Fool” is probably the straight-up poppiest song Tegan And Sara have ever recorded, yet hearing it remixed is still quite a trip, especially with Cool Kids ringleader Chuck Inglish turning it into ominous trap-informed club music. Tegan Quin certainly thinks so; on the band’s website, she sharedMore »

Watch Tegan And Sara Get Terrible Advice From Vanessa Bayer

SNL‘s Vanessa Bayer is hard at work this offseason, antagonizing musicians as a wholly useless PR consultant on her web series Sound Advice.
