Le Tigre

Profile:
Le Tigre (French for "The Tiger", pronounced /ləˈtiːɡrə/) were 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.

This album is wonderful! Kathleen Hanna has really come a long way from her former adolescent PUNK age, to her new and improved electro-punk style she has come to present today. Not only is she women empowering, she is also queer-core all the way! She has always been that way, pro-queer, pro-femenism. Just now in the electro-punk scene she is more empowering of both instead of just girls. She has definetly lessened her feminist rage, and has matured in many ways. Bikini Kill was her ranting and raving, RIOT GRRL, angry bitch band (which i loved!!!). When leaving Bikini Kill she went towards the experimental/electro-punk a couple years later to pop up with an album titling herself Julie Ruin. More and more Kathleen Hanna evolved into what she is now today, empowering girls and fags of all ages. Kathleen Hanna really knows how to empower and revolutionize. This album is suggested for the open-minded and feminist @ heart. These are GRRRRREAT bedroom jams!!!!

Not really a piece of electronic music, Kathleen Hannah (Bikini Kill) and her girls do neo-feministic elcectropunk. Though this is more the punk way of music, there are big electronica influences especially on their new album....
