The baddest bunch in town: Black Bananas

Sometimes it seems like the key to keeping it fresh is through reinvention. Jennifer Herrema, formerly of influential groups Royal Trux and RTX, is revamping the band (RTX) she's been with since 2002 into the newly imagined Black Bananas, and they're ready to take over the rock scene. They will be releasing their first full-length album as Black Bananas Rad Times Xpress IV at the end of January, but before that you can check out their cover of the Rolling Stones' "Before They Make Me Run" with Kurt Vile. It's got Herrema's signature female rock wail over pounding guitars, and be sure to listen all the way to the end for a sax solo. Rock on. - Taylor Lampela
