There is something VERY EXCITING in this picture.

It's going to be a very, very good summer.

Tegan and Sara 'Feel It In My Bones' with Tiesto - watch the video now!

We love Tegan and Sara.  We're indifferent about Tiesto.  But put the two together and something magical happens, apparently.  T&S's alt-folk-rock thing lives in a place worlds away from the land of the laser-soaked dance floor.  For some reason, though, Tiesto's bleeps and blips mesh perfectly with the duo's close harmonies and indie sensibility and the whole creates something far greater than the sum of its parts.  We never thought we'd say it, but if the Canadians/lesbians/identical twins want to add a balls-to-the-wall dance album to their discography, we'd be totally on board.

The girls have never managed a top 20 album in the States, though their last two LP's went top five in their home of Canada.  Maybe a full-scale collaboration could be just the thing to push them into the mainstream, and then there will be arena tours and reality shows and museum retrospectives and everyone will realize they are better than Justin Beiber and there will be no war or starvation or Michael Bay movies.

Yes.  Yes that would be nice.

When in doubt, put a donk on it.
