Playlist Title: Le Tigre
The "Le Tigre" sound is uniquely cacophonous, punky, and at the same time invigoratingly rebellious. It's also distinct from their usurp-tuous message, which is somewhat synonymous with that of those rebellious femmes "Pussy Riot". Blended between, and around, their radically satirical bathroom-stall lyrics are a rather impressive display of clever and cantankerously harmonious notes.
What they've done here is nothing less than brilliant. They've served up a deliciously tangy earful that's not bad to listen to every once in awhile.
"Le Tigre (French for "The Tiger", pronounced /l?'ti?gr?/) was an American electronic rock band formed by Kathleen Hanna (formerly of Bikini Kill), Johanna Fateman and Sadie Benning in 1998 in New York City. Benning left in 2001 and was replaced by JD Samson for the rest of the group's existence. Le Tigre are known for their left-wing sociopolitical lyrics that often dealt with issues of feminism and the LGBT community. They mixed punk's directness and politics with playful samples, eclectic pop, and lo-fi electronics. The group also added multimedia and performance art elements to their live shows, which often featured support from like-minded acts such as The Need." ~ Wikipedia
