At a few points in this video, it looks like the new single from Tegan and Sara has a little life in it. It doesn’t take much—a lilt in the vocals—but it’s enough to show that “Hell”, in its banality and its cautiousness, does a disservice to the artist.

Don’t get too excited, “Heaven Can Wait” is not a cover of the Meat Loaf ballad from Bat Out of Hell, but the wispy voices of Charlotte and Beck over the otherwise chunky, clumsy track from the upcoming IRM (releasing in January) has its own appeal. The album’s title track is also available to download with an e-mail sign-up at Charlotte’s web site.

Zo! gets some help from his cohorts in the Foreign Exchange crew, such as Phonte, Yahzarah, Carlitta Durand, and Darien Brockington. If you are looking for a smooth musical boost in the morning, this is just what you need.

“Empire State of Mind” is destined to be played in promos for Knicks games. “Let’s hear it for New York!” Alicia sings in the cheesy hook, giving Jay a breather from name dropping every tourist spot in the verses. Why would he title this flaccid song in such a way as to draw comparisons to Nas’ “N.Y. State of Mind”? Is he trying to give us yet another reason to dig up a copy of Illmatic?
