Tim McGraw, Azealia Banks, Dido and Phoenix also make the list
Tegan and Sara, 'Heartthrob' (Jan. 29)
This duo originally started with just a acoustic guitars and plaintive, heart-bending songs. “Heartthrob” will undoubtedly reveal how far the sisters have come, as they perform now with full-band, and worked with three top-notch pop/dance/rock producers for this latest. The album is led by “Closer,” one of their most radio-accessible tracks ever.
