Indie rock’s Laurel & Hardy aren’t quite done milking The Con for its “video-ready “wares just yet. I liked The Con, so this is cool with me. “Call It Off” is a simple T&S breakup duet, but then cutting the cord usually isn’t simple — particularly when you can’t stop regretful thoughts (“Maybe you would have been something I’d be good at”) from circling your mind. The vid mirrors the song, winding up with Tegan literally wound up: “”I’ll start to wonder if this was the thing to do.” Sad. But nice.
The Con is out.
