Tegan and Sara’s new record Sainthood is officially released and has hit the shelves! It’s the band’s sixth full length album (Vapor/Sire Records) and Spin Magazine gives it four out of five stars. Nice work girls!
While they were in Seattle finishing up the record and playing a sold out show at the Showbox, they managed to squeeze in a two day photo shoot for the album artwork and press junket with Los Angeles photographer Pamela Littky. I was sooo happy they called me to do hair and makeup, I’m a huge fan! Their record ‘The Con’ is one of my favorite favorites! We shot most everything at Ben Gibbard’s (Death Cab for Cutie) capitol hill loft, and Gasworks park.
It was magic watching Emy (super-genius art director) pull out props that she made for the shoot. She jumped from the laptop to sewing machine, to set, back to sewing machine. Her graphic projections brought the set to life. I can’t wait to see the other photos in print. Especially the shots at Gasworks park, Pamela spotted a tuba player rehearsing with a Scandinavian dance troop, and ran over to borrow the instrument. It was massive!! Somehow, Tegan was able to navigate it for a few shots..
The show was AMAZING! It’s no wonder they sell out venues.
