Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
Femina, the fourth Legendary Tiger Man full-length, is a duets album pairing multi-instrumentalist Paulo Furtado with various female vocalists on a mix of originals and covers in a bluesy garage rock style. One of Furtado's most enjoyable releases to date, it showcases his behind-the-scenes talents as a songwriter, guitarist, collaborator, and producer. At the same time, it minimizes his frontman duties. As multi-talented as he is, vocals aren't one of Furtado's strengths, and in a way, it's nice to hear him cede the spotlight to various female vocalists from around the world.

Femina, the fourth Legendary Tiger Man full-length, is a duets album pairing multi-instrumentalist Paulo Furtado with various female vocalists on a mix of originals and covers in a bluesy garage rock style. One of Furtado's most enjoyable releases to date, it showcases his behind-the-scenes talents as a songwriter, guitarist, collaborator, and producer. At the same time, it minimizes his frontman duties. As multi-talented as he is, vocals aren't one of Furtado's strengths, and in a way, it's nice to hear him cede the spotlight to various female vocalists from around the world. Splitting his time between the Legendary Tiger Man, a one-man band solo project, and Wraygunn, his full-time band, Furtado has been a busy man in recent years. Though not big sellers, his previous Legendary Tiger Man albums, Naked Blues (2002), Fuck Christmas, I Got the Blues (2003), and Masquerade (2006), were well-received critically and led to a tour in support of Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker. In the meantime, his band Wraygunn grew more successful with each album, hitting the Top 20 in 2007 with Shangri-La. It's a testament to Furtado's reputation as an iconic Portuguese rock guitarist, going back to his decade-long stint with the Tédio Boys in the '90s, that so many reputable female vocalists show up on Femina, 11 of them in all. They include Cibelle (Brazil), Peaches (U.S.), Becky Lee (U.S.), Lisa Kekaula (U.S.), Asia Argento (Italy), Phoebe Killdeer (France), and five Portuguese vocalists. Everyone sings in English. Standout performances include "Life Ain't Enough for You" with Argento, "No Way to Leave on a Sunday Night" with Lee, "I Just Wanna Know (What We're Gonna Do)" with Cibelle, and "Hey, Sister Ray" with Rita Redshoes. As for cover material, there are versions of Lee Hazlewood's "These Boots Are Made for Walking" and Baker Knight's "Lonesome Town," plus bonus track versions of Danzig's "Thirteen" and Daniel Johnston's "True Love Will Find You in the End."
