Nobunny : Secret Songs (Reflections From The Ear Mirror)

Nobunny's wild punk stylings have been strutting through just about every bar, basement and bunny-hole there is to play the world over since around the turn of the millennium.   Previously Nobunny's released three flawless full length albums as well as a gritty live recording on Third Man, 'Secret Songs : Reflections From The Ear Mirror' is his latest installment and second LP for Goner Records.  From opener "Bye Bye Roxie" 'Secret Songs' examines life's detritus and turning garbage into gold. Nobunny rolls out fourteen thrilling party stompers utilizing his flare for carefully marrying decades of rock 'n' roll ideas into short bursts of adrenalin.  There's no half-hearted play on having a good time on 'SSRFTEM' (yeah - that can be a thing?!), "Do The Stooge" features brilliantly scuzzy, cackling vocals sounding damaged from whatever he smoked the night before alongside swaggering beats, guitar and a big gulping bass.  Other highlights like "Little Bo Bitch" and "Pretty Girls" further celebrate American rock 'n' roll history while staying ahead of the curve of punk today.  Nobunny continues his salacious odes to girls, drugs and questionable life decisions to his already illustrious career whilst making sure he, and everyone else has a good time along the way. YESBUNNY!
