Heartthrob by Tegan and Sara

New Tegan and Sara album is hot. Top 40 production meets indie earnestness, with an irresistibly 80s synthpop twist. I know the year is young yet, but I'm preeeeetty sure this will be my 2013 album of the year.

I'd also just like to say that this slickly edited medley video is an incredibly awesome idea. Way better than checking out samples on Amazon.* It probably helps that Heartthrob has a very unified (uniform?) sound, and every track is seriously strong enough to be a single, so it all flows together like silk.

* By the way, order the CD on Amazon (via my affiliate link, if you like), and they'll also instantly give you the AutoRip MP3 version that includes two bonus tracks (not the music video, though), all for about $3 less than buying the actual MP3 deluxe version.
