Feminist Sweepstakes


Riot-grrrl icon Kathleen Hanna, late of Bikini Kill, understands the subversive power of fun, and that even a simple, catchy tune can convey complex political truths. On Feminist Sweepstakes, their second album, Hanna’s current outfit, Le Tigre, meld cheesy lo-fi electronica, garagey hip-hop, cerebral sound collage, and new-wavey songcraft into infectious, stripped-down tunes like the slinky ”Fake French” and the fist-pumping ”On Guard,” whose grooves are as provocative as their lyrics.
