Sweden's Vains of Jenna
rocks like L.A. in the late 1980s. Its debut album, Lit Up/Let Down
(which comes out on Tuesday), sounds just like one of those strip-club-ready albums that blew up on the Sunset Strip back before Axl Rose braided his hair and turned into a recluse. Our favorite moment comes at the end of "Hard to Be Vain," when Lizzy DeVine sings, "Just to go a little crazy/Sugar's fuckin' crazy!/Cocaine!/Baby!/Yeah." This is new-millennium sleaze rock for kids who missed it the first time around.
