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-genre—horns, synth, guitars, harmonies—a smile-inducing point on the tangent
that connects Björk 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 will come in the form of a new EP, that also serves as a teaser to an album to come in 2014.
Titled Save Charlie, the EP will be released September 24, 2013 via Communion Records
worldwide (Daughter, Caveman, Willy Mason). Tracked in Brooklyn's Trout Studios, the band coproduced the EP with Tom Biller (Liars, Warpaint, Kate Nash), while mastering duties were given
to Dave Cooley (M83, Silversun Pickups).
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 US and 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-released Oversaturated 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 EP highlights everything that makes Rubblebucket so
