sainthood

Beloved indie sister duo Tegan and Sara took inspiration from a Leonard Cohen tune for the title of their sixth record, and their own romantic foibles for the compulsively listenable songs contained within. Writing songs together for the first time with Sainthood, the sisters Quin have found a winning, hooky formula here, offering up spunky and delicate personal anecdotes like petals and torn photographs, all the while be-bopping like early Madonna. The melodies are indelible, the deconstructionist admissions of their own experiences with the Russian roulette of failed relationships wry and honest, and when they finally come to the conclusion that, “My misery’s so addictive!” near the album’s close during “Northshore,” you can’t help but agree, and hit play again. Love, even for the sexy Quins, is not a victory march; but, as they sing in what I consider to be one of their finest moments on wax, “Mark my words, I might be something, someday.” (Sire Records/Vapor) –Carrie Alison
