Rubblebucket Survival Sounds on 2LP + Download
Survival Sounds is the third full-length album from Brooklyn, NY's indie-dance outfit Rubblebucket - set for release on Communion Records. The 11-track offering was produced and mixed by John Congleton (St. Vincent, Modest Mouse, David Byrne) and recorded at Mission Sound Studio in Brooklyn.
According to Kalmia Traver, “This is by far the longest project we've ever worked on. For various reasons we were able to hit our stride as a group and settle into functional creative roles...We pushed ourselves creatively, really worked to create lyrics that were the most meaningful, arrangements that hit the hardest and sounds that were the most clarion.”
Rubblebucket was formed after Kalmia Traver and Alex Toth met while attending the University of Vermont. Following graduation, the two were joined by Adam Dotson (trombone, euphonium, vocals), David Cole (Drums) and Ian Hersey (electric guitar) and released their self-titled debut in 2009. The group's second full-length, Omega La La was produced and mixed by Eric Broucek (Hercules and Love Affair, Classixx, Holy Ghost) and was issued in 2011.
"...it's my great pleasure to now have Rubblebucket as a part of the Communion Records roster, and a part of our family...the depth and volume of their writing has blown me away, just pure creation, the music just falls out of them. They're great people and their music is going to touch a lot of people's lives the way it did mine...Just press play on Survival Sounds and feel your body start to move." - Ben Lovett (Communion co-founder / Mumford & Sons)
