Sin, Sin, Sin - Le Butcherettes

The Le Butcherettes have been gathering quite a following on the back of their roisterous live performances and there's been an eager anticipation, not least from myself, for the release of their debut full length album. Today it finally arrived and after a couple of listens its already jumped to being my top album 2011 so far (and will take some effort to be shifted).

Produced by Omar Rodriguez Lopez (of The Mars Volta) Sin, Sin, Sin is essentially a punk album that twists and turns through elements of garage rock (I'm Getting Sick Of You), cabaret (The Actress That Are Rousseau), tender spoken vocals (end of The Leibniz Language), and the theatrical and bizarre sounding (Mr. Tolstoi).

Some stand out tracks on the album come from those that already have had a fair amount of airing during Le Butcherettes gigs as well as being available on pre-release. Tonight, the first track of the album sets you up nicely with what's to come. This is followed by New York which speeds through in under two minutes and will be a certain fan favourite. The Leibniz Language is the longest track of the album and demonstrates the greatest variety opening with synthesised organ riffs, picking up pace in the middle before ending with example of the more senstive side of Teresa Suaréz's (aka Teri Gender Bender) vocals.

Sin, Sin, Sin is released by Rodriguez Lopez Productions / Sargent House and you can stream or download the album at the Le Butcherettes BandCamp page.
