i know a little bit about a lot of (gay) things. enough that i can write about something lesbianic every single day...which is cool. but in some cases, like with the Buffy tv show and other things, im totally ignorant. so i love being schooled by you guys:-)
of course ive known about Tegan & Sara for a long time now. ive read about them a little here and there. i saw them on the L Word (season 3)...i pretty much knew their *deal* but for some reason, i made it a point not to listen to their music. as im typing this, im realizing that it was most likely because i was afraid i would hate it, and then it would ruin this whole *lesbian twins who are indie icons* vibe they have.
but a couple of weeks ago, i pulled it together, and went to their myspace page. i liked all the songs i heard, so i bought their latest album So Jealous. 2 weeks later, i'm a believer! cant stop listening to it. am addicted to it. must...have...more. im even thinking of getting that 4 pack thingy they have on their official website for myself for christmas.
"walking with a ghost": even if you've never heard of these girls before today, you've certainly heard this song...
their music is yummy. please leave a comment and tell me more about what you know about them. like, do they have girlfriends? do they like steak? how many cds have they sold? (im still trying to get a feel of how popular they are) do they like icecream? if so, what TYPE of icecream?
i will without a doubt interview them for a future issue of my magazine as soon as i can. and here's an interview they did...sometime...somewhere:-)
i wanna thank everyone on myspace who helped me find out who wrote each song last night...there were looots of you, and this chick told me about this awesome fan page with lots of info.
here's another video they did for "Speak Slow"...
while you're checking out new lesbian music, you should also go hit up one of our fellow homogirls named Grace. she has a music project @ myspace.com/dearsirmusic. go give her some support.
id also love to hear about your music. i spend half of my time working on my (sickly) indie magazine where we focus on music of all genres...gay or straight...or in between. and the other half focusing on this beautiful lesbian and lesbian-friendly cmmunity. so anytime i can have the two worlds shag each other, im happy! leave a comment and tell everyone about your band or solo project.
