Tegan and Sara

Today Tegan and Sara have shared “Smoking Weed Alone” the fifth track released in ad from their forthcoming 10th studio album, Crybaby, due Oct. 21 via Mom+Pop Music.

The album release comes on the heels of last week’s release of High School, the widely lauded TV series based on their best-selling memoir. Tegan and Sara kick off their fall North American tour October 26th in Philadelphia, featuring Tomberlin in the opening slow.

While the track was written by Tegan, “Smoking Weed Alone” showcases the band’s approach to the album.

Crybaby

“With this album, I wanted there to be a dialogue that we could have about the songs,” says Sara. “Some of Tegan’s songs became almost like duets, because she allowed me to go in there and challenge her to rewrite lyrics. I wanted a narrative that could tie into our relationship and some of the things that were happening in our life, even if the song wasn’t about that. And for ‘Smoking Weed Alone,’ there’s a chorus where we’re sort of singing to each other, and we haven’t done that before, in our career.”

Good Music

Good Music, in collaboration with NOISE FOR NOW, announced the Good Music To Ensure Safe Abortion Access To All compilation earlier this week.

The new fundraising compilation will benefit organizations facilitating abortion access and features genre-spanning previously unreleased recordings including never-before-heard new songs, covers, remixes, live versions, and unreleased demos. The compilation will be available for only 24 hours exclusively on Bandcamp this Friday, October 7th starting at 12am PT as part of the Bandcamp Fridays initiative. Follow Good Music via Bandcamp for first access to the album: https://goodmusiccomp.bandcamp.com.

Today, fans get an early listen to Wet Leg’s contribution – a demo of their song “Loving You.” The original track is found on the duo’s celebrated self-titled debut album.

The compilation also features songs from artists that include Amanda Shires x Jason Isbell, Bobby Weir & Wolf Bros, Cat Power, Daniel Rossen, David Byrne x Devo, Death Cab for Cutie, Fleet Foxes, Gia Margaret, Grouplove, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Mac DeMarco, Maya Hawke, Overcoats, Pearl Jam, PUP, The Regrettes, R.E.M., Sleater-Kinney, Soccer Mommy, Tegan and Sara, Thao x Tune-Yards, Ty Segall and more, with the compilation’s cover art created by Kim Gordon.

100% of the net proceeds will benefit non-profit organizations working to provide abortion care access to all: Brigid Alliance – a referral-based service that provides travel, food, lodging, child care and other logistical support for people seeking abortions; and NOISE FOR NOW who are working with Abortion Care Network to support independent abortion clinics.

“NOISE FOR NOW is thrilled to see these incredible artists rally around Abortion Rights,” notes Amelia Bauer, Executive Director of NOISE FOR NOW. “We know that this stellar group of musicians stands with the majority of Americans in believing that decisions about if and when to grow a family are deeply personal, and we must trust people to make those decisions for themselves without shame, stigma or criminalization. Abortion is healthcare. Liberate Abortion!” In addition to the compilation, fans can also pre-order t-shirts featuring Kim Gordon’s “Liberate Abortion” artwork via NOISE FOR NOW

Tegan and Sara

Tegan and Sara have shared another new track from their forthcoming 10th studio album, Crybaby, due Oct. 21 via Mom+Pop Music. “I Can’t Grow Up” is a self-described “snotty nosed pop song about not being able to grow out of bad habits in relationships.” The official video, directed by Mark Myers, matches the song’s playfulness and the duo’s charisma.

The new song “was musically inspired by Chicago band Dehd and their album Flower of Devotion,” according to Sara Quin. “The song started on bass, an instrument I’d never written with until Crybaby, and I was channeling a little bit of Emily Kempf from Dehd, and Peter Hook from New Order. My partner had traveled back to the U.S., after a year of being stuck in Canada during the pandemic, and I was enjoying late nights alone writing music and singing full tilt in the basement.”.

April 28th, 2022

The innovative, multi-platinum Canadian duo Tegan and Sara have shared a new single today, “Fucking Up What Matters,” the first music they’ve released since signing with new label Mom+Pop Music.

Introducing the next exciting chapter in twin sister Tegan and Sara Quin’s musical career, the biting, propulsive slice of power pop single reflects on the turbulence the twins felt in both their own lives and the world at large over the past several years. “Fucking Up What Matters” was co-produced with John Congleton (Sharon Van Etten, Angel Olsen and Future Islands) and will be found on their forthcoming tenth album. It’s accompanied by a Tony Wolski-directed video featuring High School stars Railey and Seazynn Gilliland.

“Fucking Up What Matters” felt like an ode to the moment in your life when you realize that you have most, if not all of the things you wanted and you start to think about what would happen if you just walked away from it all. It’s the moment in the middle of the night when you start to daydream about something else, something you never imagined.  It’s the feeling you have when you think you might have hit a new low, and yet you’ve never felt so good.  Sometimes it’s admitting that you can’t stop yourself from fucking up what matters, that you feel your strongest.  And as my mom would say, it’s often when we’re fucking up what matters, that we’re learning the most about ourselves.

“Michael Goldstone signed us to Sire/Warner in 2006.  We had just made The Con and felt like the vision Goldie and the team at Sire had for us and the album were a good fit.  But soon after he signed us, he left to start Mom+Pop.  We never held it against him.  But joked that one day we’d work together for real,” Tegan and Sara said, explaining the move. “So it was with great enthusiasm that we agreed to sign to Mom+Pop when our deal with Warner ended in 2021.  We look forward to being back at an indie label, on a brilliant roster, with Goldie and the label’s incredible team helping us start this next chapter in our lives with the release of our tenth album.”

Mackenzie Scott is TORRES. In July she released Thirstier, her latest album. Recorded in the fall of 2020 at Middle Farm Studios in the UK and co-produced by Scott, Rob Ellis and Peter Miles, Thirstier marks a turn towards a bigger, more bombastic sound for TORRES. The anxious hush that fell over much of Scott’s previous music gets turned inside-out in songs tailored for post-plague celebration. The album features the singles “Hug From A Dinosaur”, “Don’t Go Putting Wishes in My Head”, and the title track.

Thirstier is Torres’ 5th studio album. She has opened for Brandi Carlile, Garbage and Tegan and Sara. Torres has a blunt humanity to her music. It leaves her vulnerable and exposed. Reaching for new heights with Thirstier, Torres roars. Torres is on a nationwide tour now through October 21. She will finish at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC.

Bachelor—the collaborative project of Palehound’s Ellen Kempner and Jay Som’s Melina Duterte—release their highly-anticipated debut album, Doomin’ Sun, via Polyvinyl Record Co., Lucky Number and Milk! Records today! With an ominous eye to extreme fandom, the duo has also released their new “Back Of My Hand” video, directed by Ellen Kempner.

The band shares: “For the “Back Of My Hand” video, we wanted more than anything to make something fun given the limited time and options available due to the current pandemic. Ultimately deciding to put Ellen in the director’s chair as well as film at her home with a skeleton crew. Our final single is about the dark side of fandom and we wanted to exaggerate that as much as possible in our video concept. When it came to choosing an artist to obsess over we quickly chose Harry Styles as we both are truly big fans!”

To celebrate the album release they have also announced Doomin’ Sun Fest, a massive, free/donation-based livestream festival + telethon to benefit and uplift Seeding Sovereignty. The festival will take place on June 10 starting at 6pm ET., and features the likes of Tegan & Sara, Courtney Barnett, Benjamin Gibbard, Sylvan Esso, Adrianne Lenker (Big Thief), Jeff Tweedy, Japanese Breakfast, Julien Baker, Tank And The Bangas and more.
