- Genius Fatigue by Tunabunny
8/10 Mike Staff review, 03 January 2013
Athens, Georgia’s Tunabunny have returned with another album of their ramshackle slacker indie rock stylings. They’ve got a girl singer, a lo-fi rough around the edges feel and a handful of memorable melodies up their sleeve, and they’re reminding me of a lot of the girl-fronted indie rock bands doing the rounds over on this side of the pond at the moment like Allo Darlin’, Evans The Death, Shrag and Golden Grrrls, with a touch of US late-emo types like Rainer Maria or Lemuria, some ‘60s inflections that recall Best Coast and Grass Widow, and just the slightest hint of Breeders nonchalance.
It’s a tried and tested formula, executed with no small amount of style and some clever, knowingly lo-fi production and vocals which drift around the vicinity of in-tune without getting too bogged down in the chore of being bang on all the time. About halfway through the record things get a bit more experimental with a load of drifty fuzz’n’echo in ‘Airplanes In Echelon’, which is making me notice certain dreampoppy elements creeping in.
In fact the second half of the album seems decidedly weirder, more playful and downbeat, whilst still holding on to the personable charm which saved the first half from identikit-indie hell. There’s the occasional misstep but on the whole this is a very likeable and human album.
