“Together they combine several styles of music-world, reggae, jazz, dub, rock-to produce a fun and eclectic album that piques your ears right away.” – Blurt

“The band delivered a raw, unfettered punch… The crowd was thrashing around – it was nearly impossible to stand still.” -Relix

On October 19th, Brooklyn’s 8-piece Rubblebucket will release the Triangular Daisies EP. To coincide with the EP’s release, the band will embark on the “Triangular Tour” that includes a weekend stint in San Francisco, a two-night Halloween special in Burlington, VT, and stops up and down the East Coast, from Maine to The Bear Creek Music Festival in Live Oak, FL. Fans in Burlington and New York are in for an extra special treat when Rubblebucket teams up with Hack Interactive to create an interactive, multimedia stage design experience.

Since the band formed in 2007, pinning down their sound has remained a difficult task. At times, the band sounds like Brooklyn’s answer to Fela Kuti, with frenetic afrobeat rhythms rubbing elbows with infectious indie-pop hooks and catchy synths. Frontwoman/saxophonist Kalmia Travers explains, “We’re children of this noisy age, with access to so much music from across time and space. We soak up all the sounds. What comes out can be unpredictable, but it will be uniquely ours.” Uniquely their own, indeed.

Regardless of where you place the band on the spectrum, the Triangular Daisies EP is a dramatic step forward for the band. Opening with the title track, “Triangular Daisies” the band pairs down the fiery grooves found on sophomore album Rubblebucket to craft a psychedelic indie-pop gem, complete with plaintive horns and infectious whistling. The track is immediately followed by the band’s left-field take on The Beatles’ “Michelle,” turning McCartney’s somber ballad into spacey, orchestral groove. The EP also features the band’s undeniably contagious single “Came Out of a Lady,” the recording of which was featured in the first episode of The Masters of Their Day project at Kaufman Astoria Studios. The Triangular Daisies EP ends on a high note with the hypnotic live track “L’homme,” recorded during their set at Higher Ground this past May.

Rubblebucket started — like most great bands — at an art show in a defunct milk bottling plant in Burlington, VT. Kalmia Travers met Alex Toth and soon formed Rubblebucket, building an eight-piece band from scratch with Toth as bandleader and trumpeter, and Travers taking on lead vocals and sax. The band released their debut album, Rose’s Dream, as The Rubblebucket Orchestra in 2008. The following year proved to be a big one for the band, with Rubblebucket releasing their self-titled sophomore album. SPIN hailed the band as a “must-hear artist from the 2009 CMJs,” and the band won that year’s Boston Music Award for Live Act of the Year. The band then relocated to Brooklyn, and has since been hard at work recording the follow-up to Rubblebucket, which is slated for release in early 2011.
