Format: Audio CD
I told my self I wouldn't buy this CD, as I have a CD addiction and should really be saving my money, but when I saw This Island I just couldn't walk away, and I went around smiling for the rest of the day, before I'd even listened to it.
This is because Le Tigre are like the coolest band in the world. If you don't know them, and you really should but we can forgive you, Le Tigre describe themselves as a feminist electro punk band, they use sampling, drum machines, guitars, key boards and cool powerful soft and shouty vocals to make great, kind of disco songs. Le Tigre are Kathleen Hanna (from bikini killl and julie ruin- possibly the coolest person ever), Johanna Fateman and J D Samson. The reason I love Le Tigre is that they mix positive feminist politics with fun, enegtic music. This Island is their third fulll length album, a lot of people have said it's not as good as the first two as its too polished and mainstream. It's true that the songs are more produced and there are less obscenities- both pointers that this is Le Tigres first major label realese, but they havn't sacrificed any of their political or musical integrity.
The sound here is less gritty than Feminist Sweepstakes, and maybe a bit less jumpy happy than Le Tigre, its got more sampling and is more 80's discoish, and its really great. Nanny Nanny Boo Boo will telll you everything you need to know about Le Tigre, whilst songs like Tell You Now and Sixteen sound a bit like julie ruin. There is more variety here than on Feminist Sweepstakes in terms of sound, and lyrics have beome more about personal experience.Seconds, which is a bit Bikini Kill, is an anti-Bush ( i think) song which is so fulll of energy you just have to dance, and This Island is so beautiful it almost made me cry.
