'The Con'

Indie rockers Tegan and Sara just keep getting better.

The latest electro-folk offering from these Canadian twins is somehow cuter, catchier, and more heartache-y than their last disc, So Jealous, thanks in part to co-producer Chris Walla (Death Cab for Cutie), who sprinkled in irresistible synthesizer hooks. We're addicted to the title track for its eighties-megaballad sound and over-the-top emo chorus—“I really like to cry.” The duo's upcoming local shows instantaneously sold out, so get your ticket to their November gig at Webster Hall, uh, right now!

Tegan and Sara; Sire/London/Rhino; Out July 24.
