Tegan and Sara

Sainthood (Warner/Sire)



After the major critical and commercial success of 2007's The Con, Tegan and Sara Quin could have recorded cats crying and taking poops on napkins and people would still be into it. Thankfully, our strange little sisters emerged with Sainthood, another album that explores those time-tested themes---relationships and fucking them up---with beautiful precision. Songs like the singles "Hell" and "Red Belt" are misery you can dance to, and the song "Alligator" is elegantly soulful, with lines like "My motormouth runs over you, over you, over you," stretching out and burying themselves in your brain forever.
