Not that it ever went away and maybe until recently I haven't been looking hard enough but the excellent marriage of lo-fi pop and garage seems to be in fine form this year. One case for both these points is the latest from Oakland's (via Touscon, et.al) Nobunny, entitled Love Visions. NB's been tearing at the fringes of scenes for years but it seems that with the popularity of gutter fuzzed punk ala In The Red/Siltbreeze and the rest of the nth wave of garage has brought deserving attention down upon the unshackled bubblegum scratch of Mr. Bunny's catchy as crap new record. Propelled by thrift store drum-machine beats and duct taped couplets of string strangled gutter-pop that'll have you bobbing your and more likely moving your feet; Love Visions is not one to miss out on. The original pressings of the LP were swirled pink vinyl but it seems like those are long gone, pick up one of the standard black if you can. Ltd. 1000.
