Tegan & Sara are easily my favorite super melodic Canadian twin-sister folk-rock duo. Truthfully, though, their back story is irrelevant -- I could know nothing about Tegan and Sara Quin and still have a serious soft spot for them. Today's exclusive download comes from the sisters' upcoming fifth album, "The Con," which was produced by Death Cab for Cutie's Chris Walla. You can hear a bit of the influence of Walla's band in the soft, clear sound of "In My Head," but the song's emotionally weighty lyrics, well-wrought melody and sharp harmonies mark it as unmistakably Tegan & Sara.
