New Tegan And Sara – The Con

Long weekend, lots of leaks to sop up. One of which comes from identical indie pop twins Tegan and Sara, whose fifth full-length The Con sees Death Cab’s Chris Walla on production and sounds decent after a quick spin. Among the more ear grabbing is the title track and its B. Flo synths, while “Nineteen” sounds most like the single with crossover appeal (i.e. expect to hear it on a new CW teen drama this fall). The sibs seem to have become so polarizing over the past few years. Are we making that up? Don’t think so — think back to the vitriol after the White Stripes (talk about leak) cover. People got pissed about that! Or maybe it’s the haircuts. Anyway, try your hand at tracking down the tracks at Hype.
