Now that we’ve established The Softies weren’t a cuddlecore act, let’s talk about a band that was: Bunnygrunt. Cuddlecore was basically extreme jangle – imagine The Field Mice covering Sonic Youth, and you’re starting to get the picture. Bunnygrunt’s 1995 LP Action Pants! is as good a representative of the pseudo-genre as any; besides, I’ll listen to any record with “pants” in the title. Regardless, these songs still sound great a decade later.
