Enon, ‘Grass Geysers…Carbon Clouds’ (Touch and Go)

Maybe Enon get more credit for weirdness than they deserve, or maybe the world has just gotten stranger since the Philly band’s spastic beginnings, but their fourth album of electro-inflected jitter rock sounds surprisingly familiar. Toko Yasuda’s voice is comelier than ever, burbling with new-wave energy on the slashing “Colette” and the almost Garbage-like “Pigeneration.” Meanwhile, mastermind John Schmersal is becoming more comfortable leaning closer to radio-ready — his guitar artfully complements the melodies, instead of screeching to compete with them.
