Forging a career that transgresses the boundaries of alternative rock and dives into infectious pop is new ground for Tegan and Sara.Songwriters have long understood the poignancy that results from exposing their less-becoming side, but Tegan and Sara take self-disclosure to masochistic extremes.On their latest album of hyper-dramatic, uncomfortably autobiographical power-pop, The Con, the singing identical twins unabashedly cast themselves in the vilest light possible.“I just want back in your head,” goes the chorus of the first single.“I want to draw you a floorplan of my head and heart,” begins the song “Floorplan.”Buzzing guitars, plinking pianos, and skittish drum beats—both real and electronic—help to convey the hopes, fears and anxieties that come from trying to connect through love.
