Looks like all that talk about celebrity has paid off. On the heels of being touched by the divine hand of Billy Bob Thornton and subsequent, improbable Bad Santa notoriety, Bunnygrunt, St. Louis’ masters of indie-pop, takes time off from competing in best-band-name-ever competitions to return in its sixteenth year with its fifth full-length installment of aurally dispensed sugar bumps, Matt Harnish and Other Delights. Currently centered around the core of mainman Matt Hamish and drummer/singer Karen Reed, Bunnygrunt continues to take and combine the best parts of Cub and the Ghoulies, creating some of the most irresistible pop music you’ll hear. “Where Eagles Dare, Part II”, with its ultra-catchy guitar riff and reverb-heavy vocals, serves as the primary highlight, making Matt Hamish and Other Delights a must-have for earholes calibrated toward the Measure (SA), Little Lungs, or This Is My Fist.
