While putting together some advance coverage for the Bite of Bend yesterday, I finally spent some time listening to Rubblebucket, a Brooklyn/Vermont-based 10-piece genre-smashing, dance-rock band that is playing for free at the annual food festival on Saturday, June 26.
Rubblebucket, which combines West African rhythms with cutting-edge indie rock poppiness (and plenty of horns), has been gaining attention as of late, landing them on national festival lineups including High Sierra and the All Good Festival. If you need a comparison, the best I can do is Architecture in Helsinki (or maybe a more bass-heavy Vampire Weekend...maybe).
The video below gives you a taste of their live show, but hit their website and get a free download of "Came Out of a Lady. " Check the left side of the page for the download link.
But one this is for sure -- start listening to this band. Immediately.
