The Bunny Tylers – Chance Meetings
[CD & LP Release by Ruptured, January 2018] 

On celebrating cold tobacco and cheap aftershave, eternal sunsets and surfer suicides, Film Noir and Thomas Pynchon, and the mighty power of the drone…

The Bunny Tylers is a drone/ambient group from Beirut, Lebanon, whose core consists of guitarists Charbel Haber (Scrambled Eggs, Malayeen, Johnny Kafta’s Anti-Vegetarian Orchestra) and Fadi Tabbal (The Incompetents, Under the Carpet, Safar), often joined on stage by Pascal Semerdjian and Marwan Tohmé from folk band Postcards. Operating firmly outside of any musical trends, at the heart of Bunny Tylers is the desire to tie musical loose ends and threads derived as much from the two men’s solo records, as a very tangible teenage dream of remaking My Bloody Valentine’s “Loveless”.

The duo initially came together in 2013 to compose and record incidental music for Nadim Tabet and Karine Wehbe’s video essay “Summer of 91”. They began exploring different guitar bowing techniques, set amidst a loose and free-flowing musical frame, away from rigid compositional stratagems. Preoccupied with texture rather than finite structure, guitar drones and intricate pedal-work set the ambience and mood for Haber’s lyrics of self-reflection and existential bleakness. Love stories indeed, albeit ones engrossed with the inexorable progress of the Grim Reaper.

The Bunny Tylers’ first album, “Glitches & Drones 2013-2016”, was released by Ruptured in 2016. The duo’s second album was recorded by Benoit de Villeneuve (from Team Ghost and a collaborator of M83) in Paris in the summer of 2017. The CD version of the album was released during the 2017 edition of Wickerpark Festival, while LP and digital versions will be available starting January 2018.
