Tegan and Sara - Northshore (new video!)

Late last month, Tegan and Sara released a video for On Directing, from 2009 album Sainthood. I mentioned that on the same day they shot that clip, they also filmed one for the song Northshore.


It's out now. Lots of guitar strumming, both of the real and air variety. Tons of Tegan. Not so much of Sara. That's all really.

Tegan and Sara - On Directing (new video!)

From their 2009 album, Sainthood, Tegan and Sara continue to put out more videos and new "tour-only" EPs in support of the effort. Currently, we have a new video for On Directing, one of my favorite cuts from the disc, and on August 10, they'll debut a clip for Northshore, which was actually filmed on the same day as the one we're about to watch below.




The twins also announced The 2010 Summer Tour EP, which has six tracks from the four bands who are touring together this summer on The Honda Civic Tour. It includes two tracks from Paramore, two from T+S, one from New Found Glory and one from Kadawatha. The girls' two tracks included on the disc are: Sheets, a true Sainthood b-side that never saw release, but is only the second official Tegan and Sara writ-collaboration to be let out (Paperback Head being the other). The other is a live acoustic version of Back in Your Head, from an Australian tour date.


US iTunes has the disc. Cop it here.


Now watch the video for On Directing. Ooooh, lights.

Toro Y Moi: Amplified (behind the band video!)

The latest installment of ABCNews' web series, Amplified, features Toro Y Moi. This time, the interviewer is none other than Nick Diamonds, from Islands, whom the lad shared a number of tour dates with last year. Get ready, beasts...it's about to get chilly. And wavey.



In this video, we get to eavesdrop on a conversation between Chaz Bundick and Nick as they talk about Chaz’s personal (embarrassingly so, he says) lyrics, the pressure of being a “glo-fi pioneer,” and whether Chaz is “raunchy” in his personal life. 


Also, Chaz utters one of the weirdest and funniest sentences ever. Hint: It has to do with dogs.


Watch now.

Tegan and Sara Release Alligator Remixes LP

Is anyone's lucky number 17? I don't know that I've ever encountered a soul who's claimed as such, but I guess if that's your deal, and you dig indie-folky Canadian rock, remixed to the max, then Tegan and Sara's recent release is for you. The twins' latest single, Alligator, got scrubbed up in nearly 20 different ways, and it's available to purchase now. Numbers!


Alligator is taken from their most recent full-length, Sainthood, and is a standout track on its own original legs. But if you want to "up the dance factor", then this is a highly suggested purchase. The twins put it in much cuter terms...like this...

Hello friends! We have exciting news about the upcoming release of our Alligator LP! It will be released on iTunes around the world on March 30th! **This release on iTunes will not include the UK, that release date is still pending. This is a digital release but we are hoping to have vinyl available in the spring! More details soon!

Here is the track list! If you’ve ever fantasized about having a dance party with 17 versions of the same song…watch out, this is your dream come true. There is something for everyone, and we’re thrilled at how it all came out.  

Yep, that'll do. Full track list and a hot mix all below. Start scrolling, eh?

Tiësto (featuring Tegan and Sara) - Feel It In My Bones (new video!)

Back in September of last year, many kids including myself, got all sorts of giddy at the announcement of Tiësto's Kaleidoscope album track list, which hosted a variety of novelly-interesting vocal matchups.


First up, was the Tegan and Sara sung, Feel It In My Bones, a pulsing and passionate anthem that drives through your, well, bones for lack of a better phrasing. Tiësto also brought in heavy-hitters, Emily Haines, Kele Okereke and Nelly Furtado, to help him out on the voiced portions of his new tunes.

Today, we're graced with an LED-licious video for that first track. Gosh, I still love it as much as the first time I heard it. Yeah, I nerd out for the Dutch DJ...so be it!

Watch the video now.
