The Quin sisters are back with album number six. It’s called “Sainthood” and it’s once again full of catchy indie pop songs sung by every lesbian’s wet dream. According to Tegan and Sara, their two most popular albums to date were the last two (“So Jealous” and “The Con”), so it made sense to them to bring in the two producers responsible for those albums, Death Cab’s Chris Walla and Howard Redekopp.
The biggest change is that they brought in a whole battery of synths and keyboards, which helps lend them a more post-punkish vibe. Other than that, not a lot has changed and that’s a good thing. The sisters’ harmonies are still a pleasure to listen to even though the lyrics are still rather dark and not so innocent anymore. Their newfound sound fits the lyrics to a tee and it makes “Sainthood” their most accomplished album to date.
