Jennifer Herrema is Bananas

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011
Not yellow bananas, black bananas. Duh. Jennifer Herrema, former front woman of the Royal Trux and RTX, 90s icon of mastering the art of "whatever," has a new musical project called Black Bananas. Black Bananas debut album, Rad Times Xpress IV, premieres on January 31 (Drag City Records), but until the drop date (or when someone leaks a few tracks on their blog), we're just have to get a taste from Herrema'a latest effort to cover the Rolling Stone's hit, "Before They Make Me Run" with rock n' roll golden boy, Kurt Vile. Check out Jennifer Herrema x Kurt Vile's song here. Heard via: Pitchfork

"Panty Plunder Cucumber Salad" is about as sexy as a naked Dorrito. [The Sexist & Cook to Bang] We'd like to call your attention to a really lame joke. [The High Definite] Great interview with Jennifer Herrema, the ever-stylish singer from Royal Trux. [Vice] You've been binge drinking and eating pasta all winter, but now it's spring so you're going to ride your bike everyday and burn off all the excess winter weight, right? Wrong, kind of. You'll try, but spring/summer collections always come with a side of "getting drunk in the sun." You'll feel guilty, freak-out and resort to a cleanse or insane diet to slim down before it's time for bikinis. Here are 7 of the Biggest Diet Myths you should consider before cutting the trans fat and switching to diet soda. [Live Science] The American Apparel debate of "real models" vs. "real girls" continues. [The Cut] This is how you get your girlfriend back. "Dick Slang". [Prefix Magazine] Quote of the Week: "When Heidi woke up from the anesthesia [last time], she was angry [her breasts] weren't bigger. She said she wanted to punch the doctor in the face. I try to stop her. She'll do what she wants with her body." - Spencer Pratt talks to Life & Style [Pop Eater]
