Oh cool, Jennifer Herrema's Black Bananas are back this week. Their 'Rad Times Express IV' debut got plenty of spins from me so I'm happy to announce that they've not really fucked with the formula that made that album so much fun. In case you missed that one, the style in question is a louche neon mutated soulpop/drug-rock hybrid with the "Party" dial cranked to 11. It's a delirious mixture of '80s sleaze-rock and dizzying futurepop sonics in a nonstop parade of brightly hallucinogenic tones cleverly disguised as a collection of pop tunes.   The influences are varied and shameless, listen carefully and you feel like you can hear snippets of Rick James, Billy Idol, Supertramp, Ke$ha, Joan Jett, 'Real Wild Child'-era Iggy, the Flaming Lips, Cornelius...it's unabashed sex-and-drugs sleazepop, but the production is crazy, sounds are smooshed into super-compressed chunks of buzzy distortion and whooshing phaser-madness, Herrema's voice a simmering computerised drawl that hangs sexily over beeping synths and sex-funk guitars in their flickering fluorescent soup of a sound.   It's brash and kind of filthy, some people will probably think it's a bit much, but if you liked their other album you'll find that this is equally arousing.
