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 »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: April 2013

After experimenting with three formats for the Monthly Mix — MP3 zip, Spotify playlist, Soundcloud set, etc. — in March we finally came upon a solution that pleased everyone: all of them. And so, for you, here is the month’s music, whittled down to its very best, via each of the aforementioned mediums, limited only… 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. With this new music video, Tegan And Sara seemingly reprise the the role… More »

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 the next… 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 wander… 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 »

Watch Tegan And Sara Play Leno

On last night’s Tonight Show, Tegan And Sara showed up to give a spirited rendition of “Closer,” the dance-pop hit from their very good new album Heartthrob. On the show, Tegan, Sara, and their backing band all made a clear and noise-free visual statement in favor of marriage equality, wearing pink stage clothes and displaying… More »

Tegan And Sara – “Now I’m All Messed Up” Lyric Video

Just when you thought you knew everything there is to know about Tegan And Sara after their extensive track-by-track deconstruction of their latest album Heartthrob, they’re now offering a lyric video for album cut “Now I’m All Messed Up.” It’s also one of the more compelling of kinds, with the words handwritten and scrawled acro… 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 & Sara continue the massive blitz of promotion surrounding the recent release of their album Heartthrob with a stop off at Ellen. The Quin sisters played “Closer,” which we heard a remix of by Yeasayer earlier today. Watch the performance below. 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 how… More »

Stream Tegan & Sara Heartthrob

The twin-sister team of Tegan & Sara are less than a week away from releasing Heartthrob, their expertly hooky, dancefloor-embracing new album. We’ve already heard a bunch of its songs: “Closer,” “I Was A Fool,” “Now I’m All Messed Up,” “I Couldn’t Be Your Friend.” And now Rolling Stone has a stream of the whole… More »

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 it… 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 the Perry-comparisons deter… 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 get the Stones’… More »

Watch Tegan & Sara Cover Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time”

The sisters Quin embrace full-on synth-pop with their latest single “Closer” so it’s not a huge surprise to learn they love Cyndi Lauper. “We were lifetime fans and she was always an influence,” Tegan recently told Billboard when she and Sara took on “Time After Time” for the magazine’s Candid Covers series. (Lauper was also… More »
