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 rest… More »

New Tegan And Sara Video – “Call It Off”

Indie rock’s Laurel & Hardy aren’t quite done milking The Con for its “video-readywares 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 thoughts (“Maybe you would… 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 »

Bonnaroo: It’s A (Photo) Wrap

The tents are collapsed, the recycling collected, the hippies headed to the showers (j/k hippies don’t take showers). Bonnaroo ’08 now belongs to the chemically enhanced memories of its campers, and to message boards worldwide as people bitch about Kanye’s ego. Consider this the scroll-y cork in our coverage of the fest for… More »

Sasquatch 2008 In Photos

On first blush we all agreed Sasquatch! pulled together one of the lineups to beat of this glutted summer festival season, which is why we’re psyched that, despite not having made the trip ourselves, we were able to send photog Chona Kasinger in our stead to capture the Lips/Mouse/R.E.M. & M.I.A.-heavy lineup. Rainn Wilson wa… More »

Tegan & Sara Are Indie Rock’s Laurel & Hardy

When it comes to cute, Canadian, creatively coiffed, twindie rockers, Tegan and Sara Quin are among the best. Did you know they’re witty? The duo’s sisterly bickering is a big hit on YouTube. After a triumphant performance at Coachella, the girls talked to AP about their comedy stylings. “Sometimes I like it more than music,”… More »

Coachella: Friday In Photos

By Amrit Singh & Brandon Stosuy
You know what sucked for every band following Les Savy Fav yesterday? The fact that they had to follow Les Savy Fav yesterday. Under intensely blazing Indio heat, Harrington and his hockey blogging art-punkers set the bar high for hijinx and outright spectacle right from the go,… More »

Videos From Coachella Friday

Greetings from Indio. We saw lots of stuff yesterday: Les Savy Fav, The National, Cut Copy, The Verve (!), Aphex Twin (!!), Jack Johnson (!!!). And so far one celebrity (does Whitney Port count?). While we get going cropping beautiful photos for you, enjoy this selection of fan captured vids from the Polo Field. Tega… More »

New Tegan Quin – “His Love”

Augusten Burroughs writes funny and sad and often devastating books. Tegan & Sara write catchy-ass songs. Maybe sometime’s they’re sorta sad. Tegan Quin recorded “His Love” sans Sara, and she does a good job. (Just like Sara did a fine job by her lonesome when she covered R.E.M. for our Drive XV project.) Here, Tega… More »

New Kaki King Video – “Pull Me Out Alive”

Like the Polyphonic Spree before her, STD awareness crusader/six-string master Kaki King strings together thousands of still photographs to form a beautiful music video. (In the Spree’s case it was 70,000 while Kaki’s working with around 5K, but then DeLaughter’s act has like 23 times more members.) The choppy effect, combined with colorful light ribbo… More »

Tegan & Sara Offer Geography Lessons, Solo Project + New Northern State – “Away Away (Dub Mix)”

Our favorite Canadian twins are currently on tour with Northern State — between the two crews, there’s much to report. For starters, Tegan has a forthcoming solo “electronic-based” project with AFI’s Hunter Burgan, who played bass on The Con. As far as we can tell from this quote, it seems to be in the very… More »

Bonnaroo 2008 Lineup: Metallica And Pearl Jam, But No Led Zeppelin

digg_url = ‘’;

After hints and clues, Bonnaroo’s 2008 lineup’s been announced. They’ve confirmed Lez Zeppelin, but not Led Zeppelin. Though Robert Plant will show up to shuffle along with Alison Krauss. In their seventh year, Bonnaroo’s also bringing the aging thrash of Metallica (along with the younger crush of Mastodon) and the… More »

Tegan And Sara Visit Pancake Mountain, Argue With Each Other

Our favorite emo-veering indie-popping identical twins took a detour from perpetrating The Con on the road long enough to do a two-girls/one-puppet jam on “Walking With The Ghost.” There’s some serious A/V sync issues, but still the girls sound great and we just wanted to further memorialize the great year it’s been for Rufus Leaking.

New Tegan And Sara – “Back In Your Head (Tiësto Remix)”

Although “Back In Your Head” is a catchy track, it wasn’t the one we wanted to see the sisters Quin release first (we finally got that one a few weeks ago). It’s also not the one we’d expect to wind up in the hands of trance master Tiësto for a beat-thumping remix; shows how much… More »

New Tegan And Sara Video – “The Con”

Sara showed up sans Tegan for Drive XV, but in the Vancouver-based video for The Con’s criminally catchy title track, the sisters Quin are reunited and running away from things again. (Check out Sara’s “I’m sick and tired of my love” t-shirt.)

Stereogum Presents… Drive XV: A Tribute To Automatic For The People

After OKX, our 10-year cover tribute to the Radiohead classic OK Computer, we soon began narrowing the list of prospects for our next celebratory project: sifting, sorting, debating, etc. But when we realized we were approaching a decade and a half since the release of R.E.M.’s Automatic For The People (originally released 10/5/92)… More »

Tegan And Sara, Amanda Palmer Cover Rihanna

Really, we should be keeping a running list of all the “Umbrella” covers for posterity, ’cause clearly it’s this year’s “Crazy.” We’ve already pointed the way to Mandy Moore’s acoustic take but never pointed out My Chem’s Gerard having his way with it. And who could forget the star treatment afforded to music’s very ow… More »
