bikerides.barrettes.bruises (indie)



Although this six-song EP was named after Jen Clarke's bicycle accident (hence the bruising and the healing power of hair accessories), it perfectly sums up Jenocide: even as that throbbing electro-thrash pop socks a mighty punch, you go along for the ride, mesmerized by the glitter. Clarke struts, preens and shouts like a gentler cousin to Duchess Says, still allowing Ed Renzi's drum machines and keyboards to grab the spotlight on "Sucked Dry," like an '80s video game with a slow frying circuit. As close as you're going to get to Jenocide's live show without melting into those heart-shaped sunglasses.
