Rubblebucket Rubblebucket has spent the last five years building a reputation as a band that blurs lines. The Brooklyn, NY by way of Boston and Vermont seven-piece has evolved into something that is "utterly post-genrehorns, synth, guitars, harmoniesa smile-inducing point on the tangent that connects Bjrk and Broken Social Scene", which is to say that you never know what you'll see or hear next.Over the past year the band has taken a break of sorts (the only way Rubblebucket knows how), playing only a few festivals and one-off appearances, while writing and recording new material that has turned into the October 2013's Save Charlie EP, as well as the upcoming 2014 full-length - their label debut on Communion Music (Michael Kiwanuka, Gotye, Caveman). The new album is produced & mixed by legendary John Congleton, know for his work with St. Vincent & David Bryne, among many other fantastic albums. Known for their raucous live shows, including everything from crowd-surfing horn players to giant robots to impromptu center of the audience break-downs, the one constant is that every fan leaves with a smile across their face so big it hurts. After playing countless festivals, performing on Jimmy Kimmel Live and selling out venues from coast to coast to adoring fans, with a new album in town, it is clear that 2014 is going to be Rubblebucket's year.2012 was a banner year for Rubblebucket, seeing the outfit grace the stages of Bonnaroo among countless other festivals,collaborated with heroes tUnE-yArDs and Questlove for a Fela Kuti compilation and made their late night TV debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Finally the non-stop touring group brought their raucous live show, along with their handmade giant robot puppets and love-tunnels, to larger and larger crowds across the USand received love and affection from Paste, Rolling Stone, Stereogum, Wall Street Journal, SPIN and so many more. It wasn't until the fall that the band released the self-releasedOversaturated EP, which took Brooklyn's freshest seven piece to a new level; between Kalmia Traver's unmistakable voice and the band's hip shaking, off-kilter arrangements, the EPhighlights everything that makes Rubblebucket so special.It was in 2011 however that Rubblebucket marked its first milestone with their proper debut LP, Omega La La. Recorded at Plantain/DFA Studios with Producer Eric Broucek (LCD Soundsystem, Cut Copy, Hercules andLove Affair) at the helm, the record was their most ambitious conquest yet, with the band dipping into everything from dancey indie-pop arrangements to Fela-Kuti inspired afro-beat stomps. The record hasearned a wealth of praise, with Stereogum hailing the records tricky arrangements, whistle solos, and disco guitar leads and Paste Magazine calling the album instrumentally rich but catchyenough to ass-kick Katy Perry off the pop charts (in a just world)mega-melodic without sacrificing an ounce of atmosphere or creativity.
