I'm not a big enough Tegan and Sara fan to be able to tell the two Canadian twins apart (Tegan's the one with the green knitted cap, right? Or is that Mike Nesmith?), but I can at least determine that their latest record Sainthood offers more of the power pop that's turned the pair into (surprisingly) huge stars. Portland's own Chris Walla produced Sainthood—his second time behind the boards for Tegan and Sara—and the record bounces back and forth between the two songwriters, playing not so much like a dialogue as a hit parade, where every song has a giant hook and flaunts it without shame. Tegan and Sara's concerts are similarly relentless—in a good way—with the sisters cheerfully bickering with one another. NED LANNAMANN
