Tegan And Sara – “Don’t Find Another Love”

Tegan And Sara are straight-up getting paid in 2014, and that is a good thing. In recent weeks, they've contributed songs to The Lego Movie and the Oreo commercial, and now they've got a new song on the soundtrack to Endless Love, a forthcoming soft-batch romantic drama with Alex Pettyfer in it. Tegan And Sara'… More »

Hear Tegan And Sara’s Oreo Jingle

So Oreos is introducing some new flavors beyond just the original cream and the crack-level-addictive mint: Cookie Dough and Marshmallow Crispy.

Tegan And Sara (Feat. The Lonely Island) – “Everything Is AWESOME!!!”

A year ago, Andy Samberg interviewed Tegan And Sara for a ridiculous online skit to promote their album Heartthrob.

The Week In Pop: Why So Serious, Jennifer Nettles?

My first exposure to Sugarland was the video for "Stuck Like Glue," a 2010 single that injected a shot of unexpected quirk to the heavily codified country radio landscape. I hadn't paid close attention to mainstream country since I was a kid, but somehow "Stuck Like Glue" made its way into my browser and captured… More »

Stereogum’s 50 Favorite Songs Of 2013

Determining the year's best albums is, admittedly, a subjective pursuit. But even more than an albums roundup, a list of songs is an intensely personal way to sum up a year in music. It is a process of appreciating the trees in a forest so sprawling it can never be mapped out entirely, celebrating the… More »

The 50 Best Albums Of 2013

Earlier this year, New York Times pop critic Jon Caramanica wrote a piece about pop's Summer Of Smooth, about how many of this year's big warm-weather crossover hits were soft and breezy and immaculately produced and comforting pieces of throwbacky, slick pseudo-R&B. Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" drove the narrative, but it also encompassed Bruno Mar… More »

Watch Tegan And Sara Play The Today Show

Tegan And Sara's synthpop single "Closer" is a year old at this point, and it was always a pretty big song in our circles, but it blew the fuck up in a pop-radio sense when they virally performed it with Taylor Swift last month. And now they're the type of group who gets to perform… More »

Watch Tegan And Sara Perform With Taylor Swift In L.A.

On Taylor Swift's current neverending RED arena tour, she regularly brings out artists who she's a fan of, so she can dork out in front of the hordes of teenagers who are dorking out in front of her; it's, to my mind, a deeply endearing tendency. That ever-expanding list of artists is a wide and… More »

Watch Tegan And Sara Play CBS This Morning

Tegan And Sara are the rare group who, even at their chirpiest and dance-poppiest, will always sound pretty great, even early in the morning, even taking the Calgary accents into account. Over the weekend, the duo showed up on CBS This Morning to test this hypothesis, playing a stripped-down and drumless rendition of their single… More »

Tegan And Sara – “I Was A Fool” Video

For the lyric video for Tegan And Sara's "I Was A Fool," the Quin sisters act almost as guardian angels for an anonymous girl traipsing a city while combating heartbreak and the lyrics for the track cleverly show up throughout the clip.
