from Tegan and Sara - the con is the fifth album that we have released as “tegan and sara”. but first, here is a brief history: we are born (at the same time, give or take eight minutes). we are raised in calgary, alberta, canada. february 2004 we make “so jealous”. we finally sell some records! we get nominated for a juno (canadian grammy). the killers take us on tour all over the USA, and the white stripes cover one of our songs. we buy hummers and do cocaine. just kidding. we meet up with chris walla (death cab for cutie). we give him the demos, and we make a plan to relocate to portland, oregon to record with him at his studio in january 2007. we move into a house in portland. we walk to the studio everyday. we tow our gear behind us in a wagon. we bring angela kendall (who filmed “the making of so jealous” and the speak slow video) down with us from vancouver to film everything we do. we focus on keeping the songs as close to the demos as possible. after a month we’re finished tracking most of the guitars, keyboards and vocals. we bring in jason mcgerr from death cab for cutie. he plays drums and passes along life lessons. hunter from afi plays bass on tegan’s songs, and matt sharp of the rentals plays bass on mine.
