Le Butcherettes Are All About Sin

Le Butcherettes are like the brilliant offspring of surrealist Luis Bunuel and intrepid rock icon PJ Harvey. Led by 21-year-old vocalist/guitarist/pianist Teri Gender Bender (a recent transplant to L.A. from Guadalajara, Mexico) Le Butcherettes bring a brazen intensity and playful, hook-laden simplicity that hacks to pieces all forms of pretension and excess.

Sounding amazingly like Karen O at times and PJ Harvey at others, this brash, rough and tumble group plow through songs as much as they play them.  Just listen to, "New York," and you'll hear what I'm talking about. Plodding riffs pummel everything and leave you wondering what just hit you.  This is great stuff.

Le Butcherettes full length debut, Sin Sin Sin was produced by Omar Rodriguez Lopez, who also plays bass on all of the album's tracks, and will issue the album May 10th, 2011 on Rodriguez Lopez Productions via Sargent House.
