Tegan And Sara – “I Was A Fool” (Matthew Dear Remix)

Superfans might disagree, but as far as I'm concerned, Tegan And Sara's newest album, Heartthrob, is also their best. And that album's best song is its third single, the devastating ballad "I Was A Fool," which sounds like an instant classic, the type of thing that should soundtrack a few million breakups over… More »

Tegan And Sara – “I Was A Fool” Lyric Video

Tegan And Sara had already proven they were able to take the lyric video to another level with their inky one for "Now I'm All Messed Up," but they've heightened it for "I Was A Fool." The clip actually features the band, as well as a young girl, perhaps portraying the fool, as she… More »

Coachella 2013 Friday: Blur, Modest Mouse, Grinderman, & More

“It’s the homeland!” one of the girls on the hotel shuttle yelped as we neared the festival. It really begged the question -- who is the most common Coachella archetype? The only data I have to cull from is my experience from last year’s first weekend, but the situation was vastly different. Then, I went… More »

The 10 Best Tegan And Sara Songs

Heartthrob is the new album by Tegan & Sara, an aptly named endeavor for a band whose strongest songs have always dealt with matters of the heart. It's the seventh album from sisters Tegan and Sara Quin, yet their first to deal exclusively in dance-centric electro-pop with huge beats and bass. It is a substantial… More »

Tegan And Sara – “Closer (Yeasayer Remix)”

Tegan And Sara and Yeasayer are two festival-standby rock bands who have been playing around with dance beats more and more lately, but they're taking opposite approaches: Bright, uplifting clarity for Tegan And Sara, mysterious hippie swirl for Yeasayer. So it's interesting to hear Yeasayer reworking Tegan And Sara's glorious recent single "Closer," showing… More »

The twin-sister team of Tegan & Sara are less than a week away from releasing Heartthrob, their expertly hooky, dancefloor-embracing new album.

Tegan & Sara – “I Couldn’t Be Your Friend”

"I Couldn't Be Your Friend" is another upbeat tear-jerker from Tegan & Sara's upcoming Heartthrob. Based on what we've heard so far from the record, it would be fine to assume that the duo's album title is named for the pain-word "throb" and not its typical definition in conjunction with "heart."… More »

Tegan & Sara – “Now I’m All Messed Up” (Stereogum Premiere)

Tegan & Sara initially wrote "Now I'm All Messed Up" for their forthcoming album Heartthrob as a piano ballad. But when it came time to record, their producer Greg Kersten helped the Quin sisters finesse it into something more epic. What could have been a tear-jerker now feels like a song of heartbreak-empowerment. Check… More »

Tegan & Sara – “I Was A Fool”

Tegan & Sara continue on their "Fool" trend with "I Was A Fool" from their forthcoming album Heartthrob. The lush pop ballad is a perfect sonic meld of Kate Bush and Katy Perry, who Tegan says she was listening to a lot of while they were recording the album. But don't let… More »

Tegan & Sara – “Fool To Cry” (Rolling Stones Cover)

Tegan & Sara have a new album out later this month, the Rolling Stones will probably tour their 50th Anniversary jamboree to pad their 401Ks a bit (which may or may not include a stop at Coachella), and Lena Dunham's HBO show Girls premieres this weekend. Add all that up and you… More »
