letter from the editor

Picking an all-time favorite album is a difficult endeavor. I know, because I have spent the last three months mulling it over. I imagine it might be akin to choosing your favorite child, although I only have the one and can devote all my paternal love and guidance to my amazing daughter. It’s best to just go with your gut. What’s the first LP that comes to mind? I narrowed it down fairly quickly to three choices—Suede’s Dog Man Star, Pulp’s Different Class, and Spiritualized’s Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space—before settling on initial frontrunner Dog Man Star. An album usually becomes a favorite because of the personal circumstances surrounding it and often seems to be albums first heard in childhood, the teenage years, or your early 20s. Perhaps…

tegan and sara

In January of 2018, when Tegan and Sara finished the tour and promotion for the band’s eighth album, Love You to Death, the Quin sisters were confronted with the question of what to do next. After tinkering with the idea of doing a podcast, their managers suggested that they write a book.

We cut our hair short. We got one ear pierced just like him. And Bruce Springsteen was just his favorite, but U2 as well, and these became staples in our house. They played at all times in the house, at all times in the car, we…
