ON TOUR THIS FALL
"...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."
"Vermont-by-way-of-Brooklyn ensemble Rubblebucket is being the change they wish to see in the world and the weather by churning out sun-drenched, tropical quirk pop."
"On the strength of a style melding propulsive polyrhythms, syncopated horns, New Wave-era art-school rock, and gleaming pop, all within a slyly psychedelic aesthetic, Rubblebucket may be on the verge of a breakthrough."
"...joyous jungles of worldly pop-funk, instrumentally rich but catchy enough to ass-kick Katy Perry off the pop charts (in a just world)‹mega-melodic without sacrificing an ounce of atmosphere or creativity."
"Like a love child of the Rapture and Dirty Projectors, Rubblebucket has been churning out highly polished pop since their inception."
"the Brooklyn band’s output falls somewhere between psych rock and dance pop, attempting, somehow to land on the “smile-inducing point on the tangent that connects Bjork and Broken Social Scene,” according to press materials.
"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.”
"Meanwhile, festivalgoers were a little more enthused over at the club-sized Solar Stage, where eclectic Brooklyn party band Rubblebucket revved up like an indie-rock Miami Sound Machine, dancers, horns and all."
"Rubblebucket sounds like if your sleep-away camp band had a tight African percussion section”
"A Bonnaroo-ready hybrid of world music influences as re-imagined by well-educated collegians."
