I always through Tegan & Sara were a cutesey little indie folk thing who did their bit while twee girls and boys swooned. But while at the gym a few weeks ago, I was caught off guard by this synth-soaked, gyratingly catchy dance number I dismissed as another quick fire radio grab by some fresh faced band plucked by greedy A&R suits from obscurity. Alas, it was Tegan & Sara going dance pop.

It was quite….. good. And as strange as it is to admit, I’ve listened to this song a plenty and still enjoy it. I won’t be listening to the rest of the album (c’mon man, I’ve got some self respect) but this song, well, good enough for me to have watched the only 3-4 minutes of Ellen’s show I’ve ever watched.

Fat Mike needs to write another song, maybe this time about creepin’ out Tegan.


Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. offers “Vocal Chords” remix

Our own Simone Jung recently returned from her week long adventure that was the CMJ Music Marathon and recapped some of the amazing artists she was able to see during her 5 days. You can read her tales right here, but one of the band’s mentioned, the oddly named Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. (shouldn’t Dale Earnhardt Jr’s lawyers be on this case?) has posted a free remix of the track “Vocal Chords”.

Fans of indie/dance/pop will surely be into this. You can check out the track below.
