SXSW 2012 Preview: Rubblebucket

Brooklyn-based band Rubblebucket make quirky pop records where everyone sings at once and there are occasional bursts of trumpet emerging from a sea of keyboard gurgles and driving, live drum fills. Their bass-lines make your booty-bounce and their bubbly melodies make you want to sing and dance with all of your might. Their live show has been hailed as something not to be missed with 8 people on stage creating an intense party energy. Their latest album Omega La La was recorded and produced in the house of DFA Records but their sound is more akin to Stereolab than LCD Soundsystem. You can listen to the whole thing, along with a remix EP, right now on Spotify. Rubblebucket will be releasing a live CD/DVD you can Pre-Order now.

Something tells me that Rubblebucket will be highly sought-after for unofficial SXSW parties. With such fun songs and a reputation for a great live experience they are the perfect fit for almost any day-party bill Officially, you'll find Rubblebucket playing Friday night, March 16th at 10pm playing Beauty Bar's outside area.
