LE TIGRE's second full-length release delivers the rollerskate jams, sampler-punk and political dance trax you've come to expect from the trio, and it ups the ante for electro-conceptual, feminist pop music everywhere. This time around the LE TIGRE sound seems influenced equally by basement recordings and top-forty electronic production. Sub-bass and breakbeats figure prominently in the loud, live-show oriented song writing on the all-new 12+ tracks of Feminist Sweepstakes. Kathleen Hanna, Johanna Fateman, and new band member J.D. Samson each have solo vocal moments on the album and elsewhere they gang-up, finish one another's sentences, and exchange insights. Even when the songs veer into introspection or absurdity, politically complicated, feminist perspectives inform LE TIGRE's lyrical approach to their subject matter. Surprise guests galore. LE TIGRE will tour extensively in the fall in support of Feminist Sweepstakes.
