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.
