2 stars Bunnies is an avant-prog band from Massachusetts, and this album, released in 2018 is their 3rd release. The band is mostly the brain-child of Jeremy Dubs on guitar and Jack Science on synths, both self-taught multi-instrumentalists. Their music is definitely quite different, but centers around psychedelic, krautrock and such.

The album is made up of 6 songs with 4 of them around the 3 minute mark, one at 7 minutes and the last one at nearly 20 minutes. The first 5 tracks seem to be connected s it is hard to distinguish one from another. The last track is separated from the rest of the tracks by silence, which is about the only silence you will get. The overall sound of the album is quite noisy and chaotic with a lot of dissonance and strange clashing harmonies. While the overall theme is quite funny, with some zany vocals, it can tend to grate on your nerves after a few minutes. The wall of dissonant noise can be hard to listen to and it doesn't let up much, except to change on occasion to make for a new tempo or whatever. At these times, the music seems like it is going to be more in control, but it doesn't take long for it to go off the rails.

Even so, the music isn't just random noise and at times actually makes a lot of musical sense. The music takes on the structure of space rock/krautrock, but with a lot of noise and dissonance. The delivery of the vocals is almost like someone singing the words out of an instruction manual, which is probably almost correct. Yet there is a strange structure to it all. I have to say that, while I understand what they are trying to do here, and it is funny at first, the album is very hard to listen to since the wall of noise is almost always there with only a few breaks, meaning there isn't much in the way of dynamics, other than mostly loud. When I get to the end of it all, I can only think to myself, I wish I would have listened to something else.
