Le Tigre 

This Island


Le Tigre
This Island
(Universal)
This Island marks the third studio release from electro-pop- punk trio Le Tigre. The excitement of the initial spin of this disc quickly dissipates, as the sickly sweet vocals (a higher pitched B-52’s) and the aggravating electronic backdrop begin to grate relentlessly. When they pick up the pace and lunge into punk mode, they are slightly more tolerable. Le Tigre is a band that will find airplay on MuchMusic’s The Wedge, and that’s it. This Island is going to be a deserted one.
