I suppose it’s a very Moving Castle sort of Friday, and a magnificent one at that. We bounce from Manila Killa’s gorgeous new original in our prior post to an unexpected but much sublime surprise, a Tegan and Sara remix by LA’s Robokid. There’s no doubt that the twin sisters’ hit song Boyfriend is one of the catchiest pop tunes of the year. Robokid gives the bittersweet anthem a massive makeover. This Boyfriend is bouncy and bold, frisky and playful. It’s the perfect dose of hyperactive energy to kick off the epic long weekend ahead of us. The bright, colorful, and splashy remix is as dazzling as it is dizzying. Best thing? There’s no caffeine crash afterwards, and you can ride this roller coaster again right away, no lines. You can even bring your boyfriend or girlfriend with you too, they’ll love you for it. Robokid’s remix comes as part of the official Boyfriend remix package that just dropped today.

I’ve shared some great originals from D.C. producer Royal in the last few months, but now we get to enjoy his remix skills on an official refix of Canadian twins Tegan and Sara’s So Jealous. It’s a booming chill trap edit with plenty of intoxicating, swelling synths. It’s not often we hear Tegan and Sara in such a shimmering, wonky, and skittering manner. It fits their vocals splendidly.

This song more than kind of rules, so now that there’s a video featuring footage of Night Terrors of 1927 and track guests Tegan and Sara, we’re going to watch and listen again. The Los Angeles band really crafted a catchy, anthemic hit in When You Were Mine, and enlisting Canadian twins Tegan and Sara for massive guest vocals? Genius! It nearly beats out Night Terrors’ Dust and Bones as my top favorite song from them. Almost. When You Were Mine is on Night Terrors of 1927’s Anything To Anyone EP, but it will also be on their new full length, Everything’s Coming Up Roses, when it comes out on January 20 via Atlantic Records.

I just caught Canadian twins Tegan and Sara live for the first time recently at the Fox Oakland, and they certainly put on a good, long show. It’s incredible how huge of a catalog of ace music they have at their age already. I bet a huge dance party would’ve lasted till the morning hours if Tegan and Sara decided to drop some rad tracks after their encore, particularly if they bumped this new remix of their classic hit single Walking With A Ghost by Philippines/D.C. based producer Manila Killa (one half of Hotel Garuda). Manila Killa focuses on the infectious chorus  on his remix, building a euphoric, sparkling tropical and chill house production around those hooks.

Guess which two wonderful acts have collaborated on a song? None other than Canadian twins Tegan and Sara and Los Angeles’ Night Terrors of 1927, two acts I’m quite fond of, so I’m elated to share their new song When You Were Mine. I’ve been a fan of Night Terrors ever since I heard their song Dust and Bones. As for Tegan and Sara, well… need I say anything? It’s Tegan and Sara! The catchy alt pop song is on Night Terror of 1927’s new EP Anything to Anyone, out today.

Matthew Dear ft. Tegan and Sara – Pale Shelter

December 18, 2013

While Tears for Fears has been busy covering other bands, other bands and artists have been busy covering Tears for Fears. The latest cover of one of their classics is a collaboration between Matthew Dear and twins Tegan and Sara, who consider Tears for Fears a huge influence on their music, unsurprisingly (I mean, have you listened to their heavily 80’s flavored album Heartthrob?). Listen to their excellent version of 1983 tune Pale Shelter below, filled with Dear’s slick, pulsing electronic production and the Quin twins’ pop vocals. Fits like a glove!

Closer lyric video

September 26, 2012

Everyone seems to be really loving that long awaited new Tegan and Sara single Closer, so why not bring it back around a second time since lyric video was released today? I’m sure some of you have had this on repeat since last Thursday. Of course, I’ll have to share again when there’s an awesome official video, right? 😉 Any great remixes of the tune yet? It’s obviously so mixable! It’s begging for it!
