Sire Records – September 27th

When you’ve been making a name (or two) for yourself in the music industry over the past twenty years, where do you go from there? The answer, back in time… figuratively speaking.

Accompanying their soon-to-be-released memoir High School, Hey, I’m Just Like You is the latest from Canada’s sweethearts and queer heroines Tegan and Sara; another gloriously, punchy record consisting of updated, no-frills versions of their early nineties demo recordings as Plunk.

Addressing their origins in a way that’s uplifting, nostalgic, and sort of overdue, Tegan and Sara are remedying what’s made you feel “messed up and blue”. It will satiate any diehard fans who’ve been awaiting a return to the punky days of This Business of Art, but won’t alienate those that boarded the Quin train for their poppier releases.

Buy: Tegan And Sara – Hey, I’m Just Like You

Live: O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on November 17th
