This Island due out October 19th on Universal Records.
The idea of democratic process speaks volumes about how Le Tigre work together, and why it is so difficult to ascribe fixed roles to the band-mates. They work on every track as a team, picking out samples, making beats, adding keyboard lines, guitar parts, and vocals, passing their hard-drives back and forth. JD explains, "After our 2002 summer tour, we each got identical Protools setups for our apartments. We became totally compatible, able to pick up where the other left off in the song-writing process." Adds Kathleen, "This time we had so much more control, so many more options because we were able to do non-linear editing in our home studios - it was like going from a typewriter to a computer."
With pivotal issues like gay marriage, the right to choose, and a seemingly irresolvable war all coming to a head right now, Kathleen says, "It's incredibly important for us to have a presence in pop culture right now." JD adds, "We're excited to challenge mainstream media-I think people are ready for it."
