tegan: this last new song - audience member: when i get up!!!! tegan: is not called when i get up. it did not make, when i get up was not on the new record but it's a good song. uh the last song on the record - a few of you have perhaps heard it on myspace or perhaps you downloaded it. uh the new record comes out on tuesday- if you preorder it you get a whole bunch of other songs as well. you can still preorder it i think, so... could be wrong, but. uh it's our sixth record. yeah. we're getting up there. we're hella old. um it's our sixth record, but it feels like just yesterday that sara and i went out on our first tour and we camped and all the shows got cancelled pretty much right across the whole fucking country for no reason and um we made no money and i got home and i had no voicemail. that's when voicemail had just come out... yes, i was around for the beginning of voicemail. and i got home and there was no messages and i was like wow i went on tour for twelve whole days and not one message and um. anyways it's been a long four hundred years that we've been doing this and um it's really exciting when you put out a new record 'cause you get to play new songs and we appreciate it so much that you let us do that. i go see bands play their new music and they're like "we're going to play one new song tonight" and i'm like really, do people only play one new song? we're just narcissistic or we're like we wrote thirteen new ones, listen. so we hope that you go out on tuesday and buy it... the record. we'll be doing a signing... not tonight. sorry, awkward. on the 27th, on tuesday, we're doing a signing at stories bookstore.... music shop apparently, um bookstore. so anyway, uh, i'm mainly just telling you all this because um i want to be rich so i want to have all of you buy it. even though technically i won't make any money if you buy it, but um maybe one day! which is a lot like someday. #70. Someday 7.17 HIGH: 10.00 x 2 @First2Run @Posh Spears LOW: 4.00 x 1 @Petty Mayonnaise MY SCORE: 6.50 ALBUM: Sainthood WRITER: Tegan Someday starts off really really strong with a gorgeous opening riff, but sadly the verses and chorus are just too clunky for me. I'm a bit surprised this outlasted some of the other Sainthood tracks we kicked out, but it did have some voters throw it a ten. In a rate where a .01 difference can mean one place higher, that makes all the difference. So what does our low scorer @Petty Mayonnaise (4) have to say for himself? "A mess." Succinct. @digitalkaiser (6.5) and I have another moment of score synergy, but I feel like he likes this more than me: "This song ranks a bit lower on the totem pole for this album, and I think this is the spot on the album where the quality takes a bit of a hit, it’s ironic that it’s the last song on the standard album then! (Jokes, you see.) The rambling vocal stylings can be grating in some parts, but also really catchy in others, all around the song leaves me a bit confused but perched for more." @Posh Spears (10) loves the vocals: "I love the instrumentation, and how effective the lyrics are and the way they’re delivered in quick succession." Great vocals, beautiful vocals. @constantino (8) can create an achievement for any song: "This anthem of doubt, determination and optimism! The uncertainty of it all and the second-guessing is very relatable." Amazing. Maybe queen of damning with faint praise @Slice of Life (7.75) should take note: "Queen of Inspirational Bops! Katy Perry whew? Kii. I love the sloppy singing and rhyming. I love the borderline nonsensical vibe and attitude." Well at least you didn't pull a @send photo (9): "(Not specific to this song but they’re amazing at closing albums.)" Not specific to this commentary but you're amazing at terrorizing rates.
