Band On Tour Now, See Full Dates Below!

 
“The (now) Brooklyn-based band love tricky arrangements, whistle solos, disco guitar leads. I liked “Silly Fathers” for its “I’m Coming Out”-like guitar and blithe vocals from lead singer Kalmia Traver. It reminds me of Central Park, lawns, and roller skating.” - Stereogum
 
 “…bobs along merrily with warmth and punch provided by muted brass, intrigue courtesy of the unexpected twists in the arrangements, and humor by a penchant for whistle solos. Fans of the Dirty Projectors will be pleased.” – The Wall Street Journal
 
“Rubblebucket’s the kind of music that’s nearly impossibly to pigeonhole.” – Nylon
 
Rubblebucket is happy to announce it’s headlining spot for Bikes Rock, The Bicycle Film Festival’s official kick-off at Santos Party House on 6/22! In honor of their headlining spot, the band has made their track “Bikes”  available for free download. Grab the track HERE. The track first appeared on the band’s 2009 self-titled record.

Brooklyn’s Rubblebucket Returns with
New Full-Length, Omega La La
Out June 7th on Sin Duda Records

Free Mp3: “Silly Fathers”


Band Announces Extensive Spring Tour!

On June 7th, Rubblebucket will release their latest full-length, Omega La La via Sin Duda Records. The album was recorded at Plantain/DFA Studios and finds the band collaborating for the first time with legendary producer/mixer Eric Broucek (LCD Soundsystem, Cut Copy, Hercules and Love Affair) for the Brooklyn eight piece’s most adventurous record yet. In honor of the band’s new album, Rubblebucket has made “Silly Fathers” available for free download . The band is also heading out on an extensive North American spring tour, including performances at the Joshua Tree Music Festival and Floyd Fest. See full tour dates below.

On Omega La La, Rubblebucket takes a dramatic step forward with their sound, grafting their complex arrangements on the band’s idiosyncratic take on indie pop with a dance edge. Listening to the crystal-clear, minimalist production of the record, DFA veteran Eric Broucek’s influence on the record is apparent. The album opens with “Down in the Yards,” a track that builds off the ebb and flow of a droning, two-note guitar riff, only to explode into a triumphant chorus anchored by the band’s horn section. That track is followed up by the buoyant psych-pop gem, “L’homme.” “Silly Fathers” and a reworked version of “Came Out of a Lady” show off the band’s penchant for creating pop songs that stick in your head. “Raining” is an eccentric pop song built around intertwining vocal lines and a cascading synth.

For Rubblebucket, it’s been a long journey to make Omega La La. Led by the musical couple of bandleader/trumpeter Alex Toth and frontwoman Kalmia Traver, Rubblebucket has spent the last four years building a reputation as a band that blurs the lines between psychedelic indie rock, upbeat dance, and radiant, left-field arrangements. The band’s initial roots can be traced back to an art show at a defunct bottling plant in Burlington, VT where Alex, Kalmia, and longtime percussionist Craig Myers played an off-the-cuff show. The impromptu songs they played that night were the early sketches of Rubblebucket songs. From there, they built an eight-piece band with a vision to create pop-friendly music that embraces skill, complexity and atypical arrangements.

In 2009, Rubblebucket released a self-titled album that turned heads. SPIN hailed the band as a “must-hear artist from the CMJ Festival” in 2009 and the band won that year’s Boston Music Award for Live Act of the Year. The band then relocated to Brooklyn and released the Triangular Daises EP in 2010. A stylistic precursor to Omega La La, the Triangular Daises EP was hailed by The Wall Street Journal, NYLON, Paste, and a host of others.
