Have you seen the video for Elefant’s latest single, “Lolita”? It’s a slick, grainy black ’n’ white sleazefest. Cheap thrills it is, with nano-second glimpses of a supposedly pre-teen female (US law requires nude actresses be older than 18, so she only looks that way) writhing on the floor as the band sings “Lolita is on the floor…wanting more.” Yeah, pretty obvious. And pretty bad. The rest of this disc doesn’t fare much better, pitting similarly unmemorable lyrics against a heavily produced sound that feels chosen from a pre-programmed menu card. The only REAL standout track is “Brasil,” if only for the fact that it doesn’t feel overdone. Basically forgettable.
