The joys of Le Tigre are lost on many doubters; past form indicates that you’re going to be subjected to some oh-so-worthy femme-politik behind some utterly impenetrable electronic scrunching. Not so. ‘This Island’ showcased a full on power electro pop dynamic to the band, and things have moved to the point whereby Le Tigre are now making music that you can dance like a crazy person to, rather than sit at home nodding in a worthy fashion. How these times change for the better.
This newly found melodic nous is showcased non more joyously than on ‘TKO_’, the most wonderfully punchy track from the trio’s third album. It’s all throbbing synths and sultry vocals until it explodes into a riotous call to arms.
In bonus track land, the Peaches mix takes things apart and tapes them back together into a classic Berlin burlesque dirt fest. Very Peaches.
