STOP PRESS: We have an actual worst band name of all time. Shame as their music sounds promising. They got together to try to remake MBV 'Loveless' and to discuss various guitar bowing techniques but have since gone on to explore texture, guitar drones and pedal techniques. They also come from Beirut and contain former members of Johnny Kafta’s Anti-Vegetarian Orchestra.

Another band with a name so bad that you have to listen to them as you kind of figure that with a name that bad they must be sorta good.
Well these Bunny Tylers are from Beirut and play a strange and spindly take on post punk that blends drum machines with guitars and fuzzy electronics. Being a two piece they lack a band dynamic - the drum machine just plods lazily along whilst vocals are in the National style of being dead serious and low register. The whole thing often sounds like a dollop of minimal wave synth exploration that has been found and sung over by some kind of Nick Cave acolyte.
I'm searching throughout for brightness but no it's all fairly bleak. I'm enjoying 'Ete 91' which has some wonderfully pulsing basslines and acres of synth washing over perhaps in the style of New Order but this is a rare light and fluffy amongst an album of navel wallowing. However I don't want to do the album down just because I'm in a bad mood. Closer 'It Seems It All Disappears' is a grandiose and heartfelt ballad that sounds a lot like Scott Walker before he went completely crazy.
