Tegan And Sara – “I’m Not Your Hero”

Over the weekend, Tegan & Sara dropped their latest track from the forthcoming Heartthrob, an uptempo dance number called “I’m Not Your Hero.” It’s a track living within the same headspace as the previous single “Closer,” which is to say that it’s a big, open pop song. Hear it below. More »

Tegan And Sara – “Closer”

Sisterly alt-rock duo Tegan And Sara have been flirting with synthier textures in recent years, and their new single “Closer” is pretty much a full-on dive into that stuff — balanced about halfway between Passion Pit and full-on EDM, several miles removed from “Walking With A Ghost.” Hear it below.

Morgan Page – “Body Work” Video (Feat. Tegan & Sara)

Tegan & Sara recently showed up on “Body Work,” a bouncy electro-house single from L.A. producer Morgan Page, and that unlikely combination also shows up in the track’s video. Tegan & Sara play wallflowery health-club employees who hand out towels while a succession of sculpted bodybuilder types dances to the track. It’s absolutely cheesy, and… More »

The 10 Biggest Band Beefs Of 2011

Back in the day, when two artists didn’t like each other, they’d deal with it in relatively low-profile ways: A snippy backstage comment, or a pointed interview comment. Maybe they’d toss in a lyrical jab, the way Lynyrd Skynyrd did toward Neil Young on “Sweet Home Alabama,” but that would be just about it. That’… More »

Indie Rockers Respond To NY Legalizing Gay Marriage

New York just became the 6th largest state to approve same-sex marriage. Yes! The Senate bill passed 33-to-29, Governor Cuomo signed the measure shortly after, and the law goes into effect in 30 days. A historic night to be sure, one probably best not spent in front of a laptop. Too late. But in case… More »

While Earl aka Thebe weathers the Odd Future hypestorm from a safe, voluntary distance, Tyler, The Creator sits in its epicenter. He’s a clever boy just out of his teens whose anti-everything rhetorical baseline is kindling to the adolescent id, who has released a knotty LP Goblin that is kindling to sharp think piece writersMore »

Hear Tegan And Sara Cover “The Chipmunk Song”

A couple of years ago, in a clip about the “How To” With Q guitar series, Sara Quin suggested that in order to play her “Walking With A Ghost” properly, you should make your voice sound “a bit like a Chipmunk and a bit like Cindy Lauper.” So, that in mind, her and her sister’… More »
