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.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
