Love Vision: Cassette
I know this was originally released almost three years ago now, but I don’t listen to my tapes too frequently and have been sitting on this (with all my other cassette review material) for some time. With time comes the opportunity for reflection and over time we’ve seen a number of the tunes from this record become staples of the Nobunny live set and really, become modern classics. Justin Champlin’s Nobunny is expertly adept at writing achingly sweet and humble songs that discreetly cover their lyrical depravity.  This is also, in many ways, the pop music equivalent of found art, borrowing lines and melodies from long-forgotten or ignored girl groups, garage rock, bubblegum pop, and other sounds from the ‘50s and ‘60s. Nobunny breathes new life in to them by appropriating and reinventing them as something entirely his own. This is exemplified finely in “I am a Girlfriend,” which aside from being creepily perfect, borrows from both the Rivingtons and Silence of the Lambs for lyrical inspiration. If you haven’t, for some odd reason, given Nobunny a chance yet, please feel free to start here and then go on to pick up Raw Romance and First Blood, as well. –Jeff Proctor (Burger)
