November drifts into December as you watch your calendar pages saunter down to the week before Thanksgiving. Now you are left bewildered, scratching your head in search of a good way to kill time before you take the train home for the annual Turkey Day festivities. Look no further—Brooklyn based post-genre Rubblebucket is notorious for pulling out horns, synths, guitars, and smile inducing harmonies out of their red bag.
They put up raucous live shows, along with their handmade giant robot puppets and love-tunnels, to larger and larger crowds across the US, receiving love and affection from Paste, Rolling Stone, Stereogum, Wall Street Journal, SPIN and so many more. Stereogum hails the record’s “tricky arrangements, whistle solos, and disco guitar leads” and Paste Magazine calls the album “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.”
Over the past year, Rubblebucket has played several festivals, collaborated with Questlove for a Fela Kuti compilation, and made their late night TV debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live. All while writing and recording new material that will come in the form of the “Save Charlie” EP that also serves as a teaser to an album to come in 2014. So after you pack your bags, make sure to stop by the Westcott Theater this coming Wednesday to check out the line blurring seven-piece group that holds the reputation of upstaging even the jolly bearded old man when they come to town.
