When you’ve been successfully making music for two decades, you’re in a spot where you can comfortably take creative risks—that’s what Tegan & Sara do with their new album, and those risks pay off. While writing a joint memoir, High School, the twins found dozens of old songs they’d written and recorded as teenagers, preserved on cassettes. Hey, I’m Just Like You is those songs, re-recorded with fuller sounds and minor lyrical edits. The result is a record that boasts both the diversity of sound Tegan & Sara have explored over the last 20 years, and the trademark “ripped-from-a-queer teenager’s-journal” lyrics that first endeared their fanbase to them. In taking this creative risk, Tegan & Sara have made an album that feels almost like a therapeutic exercise: a love letter to all their former selves. by Blair Stenvick
