Rough Bunnies, The – “Mit Weisse Westen Dreck Am Stecken ” – [Ypsilanti Records]
This is great fun from female- Swedish- cousin duo, Anna and Frida aka Rough Bunnies. They have an sweet and innocent tone to their vocals, much like Deerhoof, but don’t be fooled, these girls are quite sexual and don’t take any bullshit from the boys. The album is a nice mix of folk, pop, hip-hop, and electronics, and broken English and Swedish vocals with a punk attitude that is contagious. The one-take, recorded in their bedroom feel of the record is charming, and that combined with the front cover artwork reminds me of daniel johnston in a way. There were only 200 copies of this one made, so treat it with care even though the artists like it rough.
