Beatsteaks are one of my all-time favourite bands, so this review may come across as a tad biased. But, come ON, they are the Beatsteaks. To me, this is the best band Germany has given to the world (sorry Scorpions). Danke to you, Germany!
With each album I think, "Is this the one that is going to suck?" Each time, the answer is no. This is no exception.
Tegan and Sara, the Canadian folk pop twin sister duo, have been performing together for almost 20 years and making records for nearly 15. With six studio releases under their belt, floating mostly between indie folk and rock, the sisters' seventh record (Heartthrob, released on January 29, 2013) takes them head on into a commercialized pop sound.
It's funny how things work out sometimes. In October of 2002, I crossed paths with singer/songwriter Ben Lee at a sound check party for a Vanessa Carlton concert that I won tickets to from a local radio station.
