tegan: i cry a lot, but not as much as i used to. sara and i have this thing (and our mom is like this too) where if any of us start to cry, like even get that almost cry look on our face, we all cry. and um, when we were writing the last record i like lived in this big house and i was alone for the first time ever in my life and um, i figured out that it really fucked me up that I'd been in the womb with sara because um, because i'd never really ever been alone, not even in the womb. i needed like um, there's this very famous- i can't remember what her name is- but she's like a scientist and she created that thing that squeezes the cows on the way to slaughter 'cause it calms them down. and i realized that i needed one of those and um. *audience laughs* tegan: sorry, it's not really funny, but it's okay. i laugh when i'm uncomfortable too. and um so i had like, fuck like a huge house that i had rented and then i had a breakup and i was like fuck i'm going to keep the house. and so um one of the rooms off of the studio had all of our equipment in it and i um pushed some um, like i basically created this fortress and it was about a foot, there was a foot in between the fortress for me to squeeze into and i would go in there and i would like pull the cases really close to me and then i'd just be like *cries.* and then i would write a song. i wrote this one after being in the machine. #99. One Second 6.07 HIGH: 9.00 x 2 @Jwentz @Posh Spears LOW: 1.00 x 1 @ethansiafbjork MY SCORE: 8.00 ALBUM: I'll Take The Blame EP WRITER: Tegan Oh look... people doing cool tracks wrong again. I hope you think about all the crying Tegan did in her fortress and take a long hard look at your life. This is the counterpart to Sara's track on the 2007 I'll Take The Blame EP. Like its sister track I Take All The Blame, there's some really cool production here, particularly with the guitars. The funny thing is that with different production this wouldn't sound that odd to me as like a sixties or seventies pop song. It's got that short and punchy vibe, full of oh oh ohs and really cool vocals courtesy of my queen Tegan. You all just don't understand!!!! Let's start with @constantino (8) who gets it: "Their voices…um…sound odd don’t they?? I kinda dig it, tibb." Thank you. @Jwentz (9) exposes why I like this so much: "This came out at the height of my stanning for the girls, I still love the very late aughts indie pop sound of it all." Busted! @Posh Spears (9) also catches this: "Feelin’ this. It feels so 2000s indie electro (this is a compliment in my world)." You're a light in this cruel dark world. @First2Run (8) wins me over by using a certain word: "What a precious little bop! A bit all over the place admittedly." You're precious. @Slice of Life (7) has a theme and they're sticking to it goddamnit! "Not bad actually but it desperately needs a better mix. I'm not about that demo life." SAY DEMO ONE MORE TIME. Meanwhile @digitalkaiser (4) continues to shun the songs that directly draw a line to his fave album Sainthood: "It’s not very interesting. It’s a very long song, kind of artistic in some ways." I... don't understand. I think @eccentricsimply (4) misheard the lyrics guys: "Eh..." Let's play it again and again and again until she gets it right. I'll offer good money to hack a Brazilian sound system right now.
