This isn’t up for debate: Rubblebucket have proven themselves as one of the most exciting, innovating young bands touring today. Consider their sound “indie dance” or something. The band’s first few albums (their self-titled debut and the very necessary Omega La La) paint a picture of a forward-thinking band stylized by bandleaders Kalmia Traver and Alex Toth’s time with reggae scene fulcrum John Brown’s Body and the youthful kingdom aesthetics of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The new Rubblebucket album, Survival Sounds, is a keeper. Of the new tunes we’ve heard so far, “Carousel Rides” is a laid-back, bass-driven delight (and dig those wacky synth bridges!) and “Sound of Erasing” flips world music atop a contemplative ska riff. From what we’re picking up, it sounds like this could be the band’s deepest work -- one that captures its live essence and philosophical outpourings quite effectively. The last time they played the Beachland, they started up a giant robot dance party in the middle of the crowd. This one is not to be missed. (Sandy)
