Really enjoyed. Hard rocking beats with feminist message.
Le Tigre seems a bit lazy on purpose. I appreciate the punk vibe they are apparently going for, but I always thought specifically of "Hot Topic" as a pop-culture store that tries-hard to be a punk-culture store, and by try-hard I don't mean the good kind. I think it's cool that the band pushes for feminism. But I think they push a bit too much, making it their identity instead of just part of who they are. I think if I had heard this album when I was a teenager I would have liked it a lot more than I do today. Now they sound like an audio STD, and I don't want to hang out with the band. I give it 2/5.
Couldn't stand it
A forgettable, boring ass record from a late to the party girl punk group that brought exactly nothing new or entertaining. 1/5
I found it really annoying
Another punk/pop punk/post-punk band that I've only ever heard of and never really given a chance. Le Tigre come out of the blocks swinging and don't let up until they've left a trail of destruction in their wake. They've got a Rudy Giuliani protest song that's relevant 21 years later. Best track: Deceptacon
This sounds like it's the best album from a decade that doesn't exist. It's a weird amalgam of 60s, 80s and punk. If you described this to me in any way, it would be all the things I hate about music. And I fucking love it! This should have been much more of a thing, it should have been emulated, started a trend. How did it not?
Quite sparky fun pop rocky album -
I was expecting punk screaming but this was a really fun album to listen. A good mix of punk and rock with a bit of electronic. Good for a morning jog!
Cool, fun, bouncy, brief, lo-fi smash. Girls with guitars - can’t go wrong.
Great opening track, cool fuzz guitars, like the vocal delivery, lots of interesting sounds and noises worked in to the music, but... pretty repetitive, most songs plod along but don't really go anywhere. Happy to listen to the odd track here and there, but can't imagine ever going back for a full album. (2.7)
Samples, punk, drum machines, women's lib. A few catchy songs. Reminds me of a poor man's Stereolab at times.
The rousing party music of the trio may evoke Sixties' girl-groups, with punchy guitars and dance beats, but in Hannah's mouth it becomes a channel for hard-line feminist ideology. On the surface one hears folk-rock, Motown soul, but each song is a terrible story that leaves deep scars. (6/10) Favourite Track: Deceptacon
Tar mig näppeligen igenom den första halvan av skivan där Deceptaton är det enda som håller mig kvar underhållningsmässigt. De senare spåren på skivan tonar ner det artsy-tonårsrevolt-skrik-härjandet och stämningen övergår till något mer mellow och suggestivt där Beck-inspirerarde Friendship station och Beastie Boys doftande (utan rappen) Slideshow at Free University sticker ut och får mig att lyssna klart till slutet. Vad tar jag då med mig av de här intensiva 34 min. Jo, att den energidrypande fuck you pekande Deceptacon alltid och då menar jag ALLTID kommer vara ett uppskattat inslag under löppasset eller som den avslutande låten på en lyckad förfest
lots of yelling out of tune
Great lo fi punk. Loved it and hearing the folks influenced by it through them
Great aggression and attitude.
One of the my fav records of the 90s.
This shit is great. I know I keep giving five stars but this album deserves it too! Its a lot of fun. Great for silly dancing.
kathleen hanna perfeita 🥺
Really really good!!!
one of my favorites
adored can’t wait to listen again❤️❤️
the raw weirdness of this electronic rock is super refreshing. “Deceptacon” is such a strong start but I wanted to hear MORE like it. something was missing - I loved it though. I feel like it had some 60s pop & early 80s Brit rock influences wrapped with a modern American sound which was cooollll. the songs were janky but it worked with sometimes simple lyrics paired with rough guitar. very good 😈
That was so under the radar. I listened to it twice in a row. Gotta be 5 stars
Electronic Punk Rock with a message. Great album. I am going to be listening to again and again
4.5/5. Fun, informative, mostly heat
this is definitely a perfect punk album for me, it just hits everything flawlessly the production is amazing with all the electronic drums and weird samples Kathleen’s singing and vocals are fucking perfect in every song the writing is also really cool and can get pretty meta and with so many weird, amazing songs like the hilariously literal What’s Yr Take on Cassavetes or the groovy, spoken-word-sample Slideshow at Free University it’s got perfect songs for if you just wanna fuck shit up, like Deceptacon or The the Empty and it’s got perfect songs for if you just wanna vibe out, like Les and Ray or Eau D’bedroom Dancing I don’t have a single issue with this perfect, perfect, punk, new wave, feminist masterpiece - this is an 11 out of 10 I gotta check out Kathleen Hanna’s other stuff
Ktebt 6 Saf7at Men 3l Bouheli Mte3 Dostoevsky, I'm Getting Better. More Opportunities Every Day, Nchallah Romdhan Moubarek
this came out in '99!?
I had received the song “Deceptacon” on a mixtape from a friend in the early 2000s and really liked it. I should have taken the cue to investigate Le Tigre further! This album kicks ass and sounds great doing it! References to Cassavetes?! The main single listing feminist icons?! Fuck Giuliani!? Count me in! Every song on this appealed immediately to me. The lo-fi instruments are magic in their hands. The lyrics seem very personal. I love it! On the first listen this seems to have become my favorite punk album.
Wheeeeeee! What a fun ride. Surprises around every corner. My new musical crush.
I have heard of this band, but was not actually familiar with this album at all. On first listen, I thought that it was interesting. On the second, I thought, I like these ladies. As I did a quick third overview, I decided I really really like Le Tigre.
What a delight this album was. A retro sound of early 80s new wave/punk, itself evoking 1960s pop, with so much brilliance to say in a clever way. Put a big smile on my face.
started listening and was like 'damn this sounds like good Riot Grrl shit!' I wonder if that's mentioned? Then google it and see it's literally Kathleen Hanna and I'd just forgotten. A lot of really great tracks, and the genre and style push it up to a 5. 100% listworthy and a band/movement worth looking more into even if you're not always a fan of the sound.
Never heard of this but really interesting.
I had always heard of Le Tigre but had never heard them. Great album! Very ahead of their time.
Saw them back around 2002 in St Louis. Fun show. I like the punk energy combined with the minimal synth and samples. This music is like a Kind bar where it's sorta healthy but it's really just a candy bar.
Amazing! A new addition to my playlists. Love the punk vibe.
Good for listening to while working. Garage rock vibes, English lyrics.
Only got through the first track "Decepticon" and really loved it.
Electro punk feminist- I quite enjoyed it. I couldn’t decide if it was trying to be edgy or actually was edgy. But still a lot of fun
Banging electro rock! Great stuff. Fave track - "Decepticon" - that track kicks ass!
How in the living shit did I miss this when it was released in 1999? I mean if an album shouts out Sleater-Kinney, Billie Jean King and James Baldwin in one song, discusses Cassavetes in another, and calls Rudy Giuliani a fucking idiot in yet another, then yeah that’s an album that deserves to be on this list.
The music is good, but the lyrics are a little bit too ironic and inscrutable for me to really get into. Highlight of the album for me is "Slideshow at Free University".
Catchy, sometimes a bit noisy and a shrill, enjoyed listening
Surprised by this album. Raw, energetic, fun.
Inspired in places, boring in others. The satirical stuff mostly lands, but the bits that don't have aged like milk. However, some of the music is great - 'Deceptacon' is nothing short of brilliant, whilst 'What's Yr Take On Cassavetes' is a real hoot.
pop rock feminista
"Wanna disco? Wanna see me disco? Let me hear you depoliticize my rhyme" (Deceptacon) "All that glitters is not gold I went to your concert and I didn't feel anything (is not gold)" (The the empty) Somos la víscera el puñetazo la hemorragia etc.
I enjoyed this a lot.
Light, easy-listening electro-punk
Best tracks: Deceptacon, The The Empty, My My Metrocard
This album is so good. Fuck Rudy Giuliani. This ladies knew what was up.
Still original, 20 years later
Shit was popping ngl. Would fight god with Deceptacon playing in the background.
28th May 2021 Listened on the car on the drive back home. Surprised at how much I enjoyed it, lots of punk, prog influences and a bit of electro thrown in too. Good fun.
Never heard of them, but then again, the late 90's / early 00's newer music and Riot Grl were not my focus. I dig it, love the quirky lyrics and the different sounds they came up with. Very much a They Might Be Giants meet early Beastie Boys vibe. I'm glad I discovered this (new to me) band. Is Le Tigre an album I must hear? Maybe? Does it belong on this list? Would give 3.5 - 3.75 but will round up to a 4.0 for this one.
a rounded up 3.5 (I'd say 3.75 but I'm not about to get into .25s). super grungy which I of course like.
Girl Punk! YaY! like an early Bombpops kind of sound. Almost hypnotic looping on Hot Topic. One of the founders was in Bikini Kill, so that explains the similarities in sound. The The Empty is great. Artist at Free University is also great. this will need another spin to say if it is a 4 or a 5 in my book.
The debut album of Le Tigre has a definitive sound with essences of; grunge Yeah Yeah Yeahs, 80s pop, with 60s fashion and feels like the start of something bigger. The starting track “Deceptacon” has the quirkiness of The Bangles and with synth driving grunge beats. The album has highlight tracks that keep me coming back; “The The Empty”, “Eau D’ Bedroom Dancing”, “Les and Ray”. With many highlights there are a few slight misses. The album has concept pieces and some work better than others, “Phanta” the beat needs more of an evolution and becomes stagnant, where as “Slideshow At Free University” is a spoken word concept piece but feels rounded and formed. There are 90s essences for sure in this record that can be heard in “Dude Yr So Crazy” and “Friendship Station” with beats and over vocals. Overall: This record has some 5/5 songs and leads to an overall score of 4.5/5 stars. Great record.
Punk-pop. No está mal.
its like a better version of the band from Scott pilgrim
4.0 - It’s got a boppy Go-Go’s vibe that’s been put through the DIY-bedroom recording blender. Add a dash of pink chainsaw to the mix. Fun!
Man the first three songs of this album are stellar. I love the Cassavetes tune...in fact all of side one is great. Side two slows down the pace of great songs unfortanetely keeping this fine album from a full 4 star rating from me. 3.75 stars
Good punk music
I enjoyed this. Punky call vocalist
wyldin around with alot of energy
Reminds me a bit of the Ting Tings. Good poppy fun.
Quite nice for punk
Angry and danceable. Brilliant stuff.
buenisimo. una onda punky glam
Ok this is right up my alley...probably gonna get an unfair rating in the positive direction for that. Great energy throughout. Im sure the lyrics are also great, but I haven't had time to absorb them, though I have caught glimpses of deeper meanings.
Really enjoyed it, many deja vu feelings of love/hate/funny that punk rock gave me. Never heard them before.
Generic punk rock. But very good one!
Wow. The first 3 songs are sooo good. Clever, catchy and they rock like he'll. Can't help but drop off from there but it's not like it comes to a screeching halt there's plenty of other great songs to help carry us to the end. Kathleen Hanna is an American treasure. 4.5 🌟
Better than I remembered
A pleasant surprise. I didn't anyone was still making fun dance punk songs in the late 90s. It's artsy with New Wave-esque synth weirdness and a fuzzy guitar. Love the dynamic female vocals. I need to check out that riot grrrl playlist Spotify has.
I don't know why but to me this sounds like a more punky and aggressive version of the B52's, specifically their debut album. Has that similar singular riffing guitar with the bright yet mechanic keyboards and drums backing it up in a fair chunk of the songs, especially Deceptacon, Phanta, and My My Metrocard. Although you do get the more serious lyrics instead of partying with rock lobsters. Aside from comparisons and the differences in lyrics, Le Tigre stands out on its own too. There's the 90s flair and horns in Hot Topic, the previously mentioned punky tones in The the Empty, the 80s new wave feel in Eau D'bedroom Dancing, and even hip hop beats in Slideshow at Free University. I'd say I liked 7 or 8 songs on this album a lot, and the rest either sounded like repeats or were just meh.
not what I expected i like
Another surprise. Never heard of this band, but really enjoyed listening. Infectious post-punk from what sounds like an all female group. Very likeable.
Rating: 7/10 Best songs: The the empty, Phanta
It is fun, punky, and dancy. Simple, yet effective.
The riot grrrl evolution into dance punk just works so well. Excellent and fun record. My only takeaway is that the vocals do edge on annoying after a while.
A bit annoying? Deceptacon is a classic bop though. I liked Hot Topic.
I enjoyed the LoFi aesthetic but they were too poppy for my tates.
Fan of Deceptacon. The rest is lots of repetition and less substance than I expected from Bikini Kill alumnae.
It was alright, nothing too crazy
The riot grrrl thing kind of missed me. It’s an interesting take on punk. “What’s Yr Take On Cassavetes?” Is pretty funny. Probably won’t listen to this again, though.
Good, interesting music
Girl band! Boogie
I really enjoy the instrumentals for this album, but the vocals are too weird for me. It's definitely unique, I'll give it that.
I am not the audience for this, if I were a teen girl I’m sure I’d be all about it.
Nice old punk rock. Joan Jett vibes for some songs
Achei nina dms, mas tem uns fuzz legal
I found this fun, I liked that it's somewhat loose but also packs a punch.
No expectations before listening- I’d never heard anything of them. Enjoyed it. Sometimes came close to being too clever but overall a good listen
Poppy. Fun. Girly. Some of it's a little on the nose like Hot Topic. Some's a little art pop/faux deep like Dude Yr So Crazy. The first track slaps and I guess one of these girls coined the phrase "Smells Like Teen Spirit." I like it.
fast and good, but I felt it was longer tham 33 minutes and its a bit claustrophobic at times
I was expecting to like this a lot more. There were some good songs, but overall it was just okay.
Very energetic and fun!
Sell-out hypocrites who knew the right people in NY. Later songs on album not very good. But, maybe the closest thing to “punk” on this list for this time near the turn of the millennium.
Good vocals. Bit of a mix of rather strong songs (Deceptacon, What's Yr Take on Cassavetes, The the Empty, etc) and some boring ones I'd like to cut that remind me of the pop punk melodies I'd rather forget (Hot Topic, Phanta, etc). Sounds weirdly crowdpleasing for something attacking social norms, but I didn't have a bad time.
Electro punk. Best Tracks: Deceptacon, Hot Topic, Let's Run
- feminism - punk? - lyrics are more important than music
interesting blend of that late 90s/early 00s electronica/sampled and vaguely subversive punk. There are definitely better examples of both, but it's not a bad album. Slideshow at Free University was probably my favorite. it was also instrumental/largely sampled which says something probably
Pretty good. Note to bring back the alesis some day
1) Deceptacon 4* 2) Hot Topic 3* 3) What's YR Take On Cassavetes? 3* 4) The The Empty 4* 5) Phanta 3* 6) Eau D' Bedroom Dancing 3* 7) Let's Run 4* 8) My My Metrocard 4* 9) Friendship Station 3* 10) Slideshow At Free University 3* 11) Dude Yr So Crazy!! 3* 12) Les and Ray 3*
Du rock électronique. Du genre de Depeche Mode en moins bon
Mostly here for the NOFX diss track. Not bad
The driving girls band rock.
Deceptacon was my favorite!
On the whole pretty enjoyable and good fun.
First listen and I have no prior knowledge of this band or their music. Le Tigre has some elements that remind me of other things (¿from the 90s?) that I have listened to, but I'm not quite sure what. ¿Luscious Jackson? ¿Veruca Salt? ¿Utah Phillips? The album was fine.
very enjoyable, very indie sound, maybe kinda like Sleater Kinney?... Would listen again.
I liked how tight this pop punk, electroclash album was. It's production masks how crazy political it is but it quickly comes to the forefront as you listen to it more. It's still very fun though, just never hits that exact spark that would fuel it into the pop punk stuff I've always loved.
Really fun album, loved the punk rock style and lyrics!
Lots of screaming but not bad.
Pop punk birds
nice and energetic
I really enjoyed this album. Very fun punk album.
Definitely a place in history for this record.
Thought this was a pretty good punk album.
Not my favorite
Poppier than I expected
Hämmentävä levy ja täysin uusi tuttavuus. Paikoitellen ihan vekkulia menoa ja uppoutu täysillä musaan sisään. Loppua kohti tunnelma lässähti
Fun album, good energy. I kinda lost interest about 2/3 of the way through but overall enjoyed it!
Overall not a fan of it but that is personal preference. Not my type of music except for eau d'bedroom dancing, was quite nice, along with phanta and deceptacon. Rest were ok but not for me
Hann inte lyssna inte jättemycket men sånt här gillar jag
Not my kind of thing, but probably not meant to be. Some interesting ideas, musically ad lyrically, but feels a bit unfinished. Not terrible, but not great. The ind of songs you would hear on BBC 6music, and then something better would come along.
Hippy punk chicks are crazy, man
5/10 had a couple good tracks and interesting ideas (deceptacon is great) but overall not a great listen
I know of Le Tigre through Kathleen Hanna/Bikini Kill as well as the Nofx connection in Deceptacon. I've never really listened though. Not too bad.
Liked it fine, would've probably liked it more at the time
I’d probably really have liked this back in Sonic Youth days. 3.
strong opening, really liked the first track but, wasn't really keen on the follow-ups, it wasn't bad, but it didn't really add anything else.
Disc divertit, fresc, reivindicatiu, de vegades iconoclasta, presoner del seu temps, però que continua tenint el seu punt en temes com 'Deceptacon', 'Eau d'Bedroom Dancing' o la divertida 'What's Yr Take on Cassavetes'. Et torna a 1999 i et fa moure els peus, i el cap... poc més es pot demanar
Kinda sweet like the great girl bands of the 80s like the Bagles and the GoGos, but with a sailor language variant
Nice female fronted punk. Reminds me of a slightly more modern Souxsie and the Banshees
Fun album. Some catchy songs. 7/10
Fun and experimental - some tracks at the start are a little basic though
Not too bad. Some good tunes worth another listen.
Couple of decent tracks, but pretty one-dimensional.
I appreciate the sound and the attitude.
It's been a while since I've listened to this album. It's catchy, upbeat, fun, a little punk and a little electronic. All in all good and fun album.
Loud, grating, but enjoyed the beat.
I don't have any strong feelings about this album either way. I felt more positive than negative about it, though. I'd probably give it another listen at some point. It's decent.
Pretty neat, electronics and dance mixed with riot grrl punk. Some really good dark ambient tracks at the end.
Not my kind of thing, but probably not intended to be. As Scroobius Pip says "You don't have to like everything, and not everything is meant for you to like!" Some interesting ideas, musically and lyrically, but feels a bit unfinished. Not terrible, but not great. The kind of songs you would hear on BBC 6music, and then something better would come along.
Playful and self-deprecating, despite the earnestness of the project.
Its actually not bad, first song is the best, the album is a little all over the place and my first impressions were that the vocals were going to annoy me. I mean they did, but not enough to stop me listening.
The music is "indie" and experimental - fun alternative indie-rock. The vocals switch between youthful arthouse to irritating shouty and whiney punk/art-school pretentious. It is a knowingly art-school album. Definitely not born of "kids making music for fun", but students making music as a vehicle for their arthouse/activist pretext. Still, it's a good listen with the guitars and synths and drum machines mixed up together. I even began to find the vocals acceptable by the end
Loved it! 3.5 of 5. The album starts out strong with four really great songs. The rest are pretty good too. Standouts: Hot Topic, What's Yr Take on Cassavetes, Deceptacon, The The Empty, My My Metrocard, Phanta, Friendship Station Left me wanting more.
funky and political
I’m a sucker for female punk, so I really dig this. I was a tad annoyed that the vocal are so far off in the background, but I also think her voice would have gotten to me of it were any louder - so, nicely done I guess.
Good Riot Grrrls
Don't think I've heard this group before, despite Deceptacon having >100 million Spotify streams. Initially words like 'pretentious' and 'annoying' came to mind, but then I got over it and now I'm leaning towards 'inventive' and 'fun' instead.
Oh man. I really wanted to like this, but it was chaotic and it gave me a headache. Punk is a genre that I still have not really gotten into, I guess.
First song is cool then the monotone screaming gets annoying
Not for me
First thing in this project I really disliked. Found the singing incredibly grating when it wasn't pretentious intoning.
Pretty weird. Not exactly unenjoyable but just...weird.
Not really my thing
I get why people would like it but it's just a bit grating for me.
Tried I really did, lost interest after decaptacon.
Not my sound maybe?
No me dice gran cosa este disco, lo peor cuando meten esa base electronica.
This is what happens when you grow up listening to too much Yoko Ono
I wasn't really a fan of the singer's voice and nothing stood out as particularly interesting for me.
Ok. Kinda grunge-y pop. Was a bit repetitive. Nothing special.
Good not great. Forgettable
Never lives up to the first song
good music, terrible vocals
Meh I get it. They're edgy. Kinda catchy at times but not memorable
No ei ollut kyllä ihmeellinen
This was both annoying and just not good. Annoying voice, simple and bothersome electronic beats, hardly real singing.....
The terrible music takes away from the cause their lyrics are in protest of.
4/10. Good energy, but a little grating nonetheless.
noisy disco kitschy agit-pop!
I didn't hate it, but the vocals were nerve grating.
Eh. Reminded me a big of the B-52s at times. Couple decent tracks, but overall forgettable
Didn't really enjoy this album. The second half of the album was definitely better than the first though, felt the first few songs were too loud that I couldn't even hear the singer at all. "Eau d'bedroom Dancing" my favourite track.
Fucking weird but a little bit of a bop at times
This album is like a lobster roll topped with sauerkraut, Brussels sprouts, and chicken livers. There’s some good stuff in there, but the associated crap doesn’t make it worth the effort.
very much background noise, upbeat but forgettable
This was about as bad as I expected it to be. It's too poppy and girly and I couldn't stand that cutesy voice they were doing. I usually hate feminists and feminism, but it didn't bother me here, probably because I couldn't even take them seriously. The best they could do is make me roll my eyes at the ramblings of some dumb little girls.
Catchy, but I find it rather annoying. Sounds like advert music.
Kinda silly pop that wants to be punk. No terrible but not something I would dig outta of the collection. Hope they had fun.
What's yr take on LeTigre? Missoginist, Genius! Alcoholic, Messiah! Ok, me zurró en general y pocas palabras. Subidas en el tren de esa época y llenas de fem-power, pero la voz de plano está fuera de lo que quiero escuchar.
Not very good. Shrieking voice and uninspiring music, kind of sounds like a Battle of the Bands band. 4/10.
Deceptacon is the only song I like
A bit too artsy for me
100% not my style, weird pop/punk mix without interesting musical progressions
Punk, what to expect
Just not my cup of tea
Rien de plus que Deceptacon
Not for me.
Post punk / garage rock made to sound amateur on purpose, generally unauthentic and annoying. In context the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s released their debut album a couple of years later, may as well be light years! A couple of ok tunes but not for me!
I am not enjoying this. I'm glad it's short. You know hwat, by the end of it, I was kind of digging it. But I still disliked it
I didn’t like any songs on the album, I don’t really get the album didn’t like the vocals, can’t think of any redeeming features on the album and one I won’t listen to again 1/5
Wat een geschreeuw
It’s a pop/punk 90s album led by females. I can see how people Like it or how people Could say it’s good, but it is not for me. Sometimes annoying, sometimes Whiny, sometimes good but very seldom. 3.0/10
Demasiados gritos. Insoportable.
Muy adolescente garage, bueno pero no es de mi gusto, no se que dicen las letras, nada muy novedoso
hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha <wheezes...deep breath....> hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha ....no. You can write about injustice and/or name check all the great activists in history you want but if you pair it with unlistenable audio poop - it doesn't matter. Awful. 0/10 1 star.
i’ve heard one of these songs from tik tok and i quite liked that little snippet however when i heard this album it was awful, it was all screaming and not good voices.
Le Tigre by Le Tigre (1999) Tiny tiny voices scream histrionic bleats about god-knows-what, from a flash-in-the-pan morality that not only doesn’t age well—it doesn’t age at all. Their pronouns are so offensive. The litany of heroes in the musically mechanical “Hot Topic” makes their cookie cutter political/cultural stance clear, but could we get some depth? Or even a bit of detail? Here’s a revealing snippet from “Eau D’Bedroom Dancing”: “There's no time for me to act mature. The only words I know are "more", "more" and "more". No one to criticize me then.” Read some Rimbaud, girls. I picture these songs being sung while the young ladies are on the playground jumping rope. The ‘music’ is stumbled across, not composed; canned, not performed. The recording is flawed with distortion on the lead ‘vocals’ and a horrible mix. The best voice performance on this record is the intro to “Phanta” (you’ll have to listen to get the joke). No gimmick on this 1999 album hadn’t already been done over and over. Even girls cussing in a junior-high-school-sounding timbre. They seem unaware of (more likely unconcerned by) the way this comes across to men. There’s a certain menace at work here. It validates every misogynistic trope. 1/5
This is certainly not my genre, it is all shouting in bad language, I wouldn’t phrase this as music per se
Na taki wylew szamba nie bylem gotowy, bo z uplywem czasu czlowiek przekonuje sie jaka zaraza jest plaga feminizmu, ktorej ewangelie glosi banda le tigre na swoim debiutanckim materiale z 99, trio pochodzi ze stanow hameryki i stanowi unikalna synteze tanecznej muzyki opartej na synthach z odwaznymi obudzonymi lirykami rodem z punkowej sceny, takie polaczenie podobno zwie sie riot grrrl, fajnie podkreslone ze musi byc spiewane przez baby o babach, ale ile bab w babach, jesli tematem calej tworczosci jest teoria feminizmu, ktora stara sie przeciez zkancelowac bycie babom, a najlepiej to sie robi kancelujac wrogow w tej wojnie plci, po otwierajacym kawalku nie spodziewalem sie az takiego kalibru wtloczonego jadu na vynila, ale juz drugi utwor hot topics bedacy swoista lista nazwisk dzialaczy pro feministycznych zapala jakies swiatla ostrzegawcze, bo nastepny trak to juz jest typowe kancelowanie kogos niezyjacych, w tym wypadku pana cassavetes, a to dopiero trzecia stacja na tym dwunasto przystankowym torturowym tourze, dobrze ze na utworze slideshow at free university wyjasnily dlaczego zostalem obrzucony takimi pomyjami, dodatkowo jest to jedyna piosenka z calej plyty ktora bym sobie ponownie puscil z wlasnej woli, lofikowa melodia, sporo samplowania, ktore tworzy rowniez strone liryczna utworu, wiec odpoczynek dla uszu po trzydziestu minutach meczenia wokalnego przez trzy panie lub blizej nieokreslone osoby, bo to przeciez prostackie tak szufladkowac czlekow jezykiem mocno genderowym, zeby bylo zabawniej okladki kolejnych albumow sa podobne, a jednak czyms sie roznia, okres dzialalnosci le tigre nie byl dlugi, bo ostatni album pochodzi z 2k04, ale generacja zoomerow i pokolenie tik toka odkopaly tak ciezki material, idealnie pasuacy do forsowanych aktualnie jedynych poprawnych tejkow, wiec banda zmarchwystala i w klasycznym skladzie nadal cieszy uszy mlodziezy szkolnej
Sounds like they had a lot of fun in the garage but man that was hard to listen to.
