A Record a Week: Le Tigre - Feminist Sweepstakes
LT TOUR THEME
DYKE MARCH 2001
WELL WELL WELL
CRY FOR EVERYTHING BAD THAT'S EVER HAPPENED
KEEP ON LIVIN'
Another week of Le Tigre, but a slightly different sound. In between release of last weeks record and the release of this weeks, they underwent a slight lineup change, when JD Samson replaced Sadie Benning. This change seemed to bring on a more electronic-influenced sound. This sparked a change that made the lo-fi sound slightly fuller and quite enjoyable. I found the record was more listenable in whole as a result. No one song was better than any of the songs on the first record, but the style varied enough to keep me interested. Side A is excellent and side B has a few gems as well, including TGIF and Cry for everything bad that's ever happened.
