Album Review: The Con

Tegan and Sara - The Con
9.0 of 10

I'm not familiar with Tegan and Sara's work prior to this album but I've been listening to The Con, their fifth album, for about a month now...and I'm very impressed. They had melted different music for their latest work, creating a "poppy-electronic-folk" sound. Amidst the sister's sterlingly cute and melancholic dual vocal approach, I really enjoy listening to the acoustic folk guitar being assaulted by electronic synths and beats in all of their songs (especially "The Con"). Their lyrics are angsty and catchy enough that makes you want to sing along with them. The Con is probably one of the best albums I've heard this year, and I highly recommend it.
