Album Review

Die Monitr Batss/Les Georges Leningrad [coll] – [5 Rue Christine]

ophelia necro   1/27/2009   7-inch, A Library

Die Monitr Batss (sometimes spelled Batsss) is a spin off of Olympia, Washington’s “The Gossip”. They are a 3 piece out of Portland, Oregon. They sound nothing like The Gossip. Noisey, rockin, no wave/ art punk bringing to mind of some of the sound coming out of New York in the late 70s. Female vocals with saxophone, guitar and drums. “Clean Up” is catchy and has a subversively sexual tone not uncommon from the band that brought us “Spread Your Legs, Release The Bats”.

Les Georges Leningrad is out of Montreal. Electro, post punk weirdness. This band puts on over the top stage shows with elaborate props and costumes. “Monster Klaw” is typical Les Georges, with obnoxiously processed vocals paired with a groovey, bassy, new-disco/electro vibe.
