Tegan and Sara - SainthoodCanadian identical twins Tegan and Sara Quin have won legions of fans with their catchy, new wave-ish sound—including rock icon Neil Young, who signed the sister act to his record label. Like their last two albums, the latest from the Calgary-born pair features peppy, edgy songs like “Hell,” “Don’t Rush” and “Red Belt,” with its ping-pong rhythm. As usual, the twins offer detailed accounts of love and relationships. “My misery’s so addictive,” they sing on the spirited, punky “Northshore.” So is their music.
