GB favorite Tegan and Sara just released their new single “Closer” from a yet to be titled album dropping January 2013. If you happen to live in LA don’t miss them at Staples Center on October 5th and 6th in support of The Black Keys.
Tegan and Sara is one of the best new bands around. Every track they make is just 3 minute pop perfection. I included their most recent album Sainthood on my Top 10 albums of 2009. Recently their new single “Alligator” has gotten the remix treatment from everyone and their mama. But the best remix I’ve heard by far comes from South Carolina duo Toro Y Moi. I’m starting to get real sick of all these remixes floating around the blog world. Where are all the original tracks at you so-called Producers?! My rule is don’t remix a track unless you can make it better. But I will say I think Toro Y Moi did just that.
Here are some older but equally banging ass remixes.
A little while ago on Golden Bloggen, I posted a track from LA based producer Troublemaker. He made a sweet remix of a Nina Simone track. Now dude is back with a remix of one of my favorite bands, Tegan and Sara. T&S will be playing at Lilith Fair this summer. I’ve never been to Lilith, but damn the line up looks crazy. Seriously. It’s like an all female version of Coachella.
