New Tiësto (Feat. Tegan & Sara) Video – “Feel It In My Bones”

Dutch producer and remixer Tiësto doesn't show up until the shadowy end of this video for "Feel It In My Bones," his collaboration with Tegan & Sara from his fourth album Kaleidoscope, but "The World's Number 1 DJ" made sure his futuristic rave aesthetic reared its Tron-like head from the first note. (Thank… More »

Fucked Up & Friends Cover “Do They Know It’s Christmas?”

We waited all yesterday for this to pop up on iTunes and it's finally arrived... No strangers to the tradition of benefit recordings -- see the "David Christmas" 7", "Year Of The Pig," etc. -- Fucked Up gathered a bunch of friends to record a cover of Band Aid's "Do They Know It's Christmas?" with… More »

Tegan & Sara Give Conan “Hell”

The Quin sisters brought the non-spiritual song "Hell," the lead single from the non-spiritual LP Sainthood, to Conan last night. Take it to the end not so much for Coco's response to their performance but how he's at least two times as tall as they are. I would have made that the thumbnail associated with… More »

Tegan & Sara/Laura Veirs @ The Orpheum Theatre, Los Angeles 10/26/09

Sainthood is out today, and the guitar teachers of Tegan & Sara celebrated by performing the entire album at Los Angeles's Orpheum Theatre last night. Aside from a creepy moment where a female stagecrasher jumped up during "Nineteen" to hug Sara, who said she didn't mind as long as she didn't get rammedMore »

New Tegan & Sara Video – “Hell”

It's Tegan & Sara/Vampire Weekend Monday... Sainthood may have a bigger, more forceful band sound, but the Jamie Travis-directed video for "Hell" features the Quin sisters alone in adjoining hotel rooms with their new pompadours, a huge supply of faceless photos, a game of tug of war, a kaleidoscope, a… More »

The ‘Gum Drop CXI: Hear New Charlotte Hatherley, Win Tegan & Sara’s ON/IN/AT

Ex-Ash guitarist and recent Bat For Lashes touring guitarist Charlotte Hatherley recorded her third solo album (and Minty Fresh US debut) New Worlds in a week in London without demos or overdubs. Fittingly, standout "Full Circle" looks emphatically at stripping away the extraneous. After speaking with Charlotte, we also learned it has something to do… More »

New Tegan & Sara – “Hell”

Our first listen of this track came from Tegan & Sara's recent set at Rifflandia festival, where the sisters Quin debuted Tegan's "Hell," from the album Sainthood, in a church (all non-spiritual coincidences, she insisted). But when it comes to hearing studio work, it's fun stacking initial observations of a band's new material against… More »

Tegan & Sara Debut Six Sainthood Songs At Rifflandia

When Jessica caught up with Sara Quin for a Progress Report we found out: ? [Quin] isn't worried about performing the songs on Sainthood, though they won't debut the new tracks until closer to the release date. The way they recorded means they don't have to worry about translating 30 overdubs to a live… More »

Tegan & Sara Unveil Sainthood Artwork, Tracklist

The other day we posted the Quin sisters' collab track with Tiësto, but that was just a little stopgap until Tegan & Sara release their followup to their great Chris Walla-produced The Con LP. As we learned in their recent Progress Report, the Death Cab guitarist is back on board to produce this one,… More »

Death Cab For Cutie/Tegan & Sara/The New Pornographers @ The Hollywood Bowl, Los Angeles 7/5/09

While we spent our Independence weekend in very lo-fi environs, Death Cab For Cutie hosted a ritzier affair, inviting fellow indie rock darlings Tegan & Sara and the New Pornos to open their show with the LA Philharmonic, conducted by Beck's dad David Campbell, at the Hollywood Bowl. Quoth the LA Times: [A]… More »

Stereogum’s Favorite Artists’ Favorite Things In 2008

We love year-end lists, it's really a shame that no one made any this month. To remedy that, we asked a handful of our favorite artists what music they dug most over the last twelve months. No Age, Grizzly Bear, Girl Talk, Antony Hegarty, Robin Pecknold, Sara Quin, and Kevin Barnes are among the familiar… More »

Tegan & Sara On Proposition 8

For the next six weeks, T&S are blogging at Spinner, where with each installment they'll be writing about one of three themes: laugh, rage, cry. This one's "cry," both talking separately about California's passing of Proposition 8, which took away the right of same-sex marriage along with the rights that go with such a unio… More »

Tegan & Sara “Call It Off” On Letterman

The Sisters Quin flashed a simple, touching video for the simply touching "Call It Off" not so long ago which had Tegan literally wound up and unable to cut the cord on some tough love. Chris Walla's subtly synthy production on the track keeps it in line with the rest of the still-awesome TheMore »

New Against Me! Video – “Borne On The FM Waves Of The Heart”

Last week Tegan Quin got wrapped up in telephone chords and heartbreak in the video for she and sister Sara's "Call If Off." Here, Quin joins Against Me! in the clip for New Wave power-ballad "Borne On The FM Waves Of The Heart," she and frontman Tom Gabel crooning across a studio while the… More »

New Tegan And Sara Video – “Call It Off”

Indie rock's Laurel & Hardy aren't quite done milking The Con for its "video-ready "wares just yet. I liked The Con, so this is cool with me. "Call It Off" is a simple T&S breakup duet, but then cutting the cord usually isn't simple -- particularly when you can't stop regretful thought… More »

Canadian Indie Rockers Tell You How To Live Your Life

Not generally. Generally they just shape our lives by being arty and so great to listen to while wearing our tight jeans and other stereotypical things of that nature. I mean very specifically, there are some Canadian indie rockers who are literally dispensing life advice by taking over Amy Sedaris's "Sedaratives" column in the music… More »
