Rubblebucket "Sun Machine"
For being as feel-good an album as Sun Machine is, Rubblebucket’s origin story for it isn’t exactly all good times and sunny feelings. But I guess it kind of is too? This is Kalmia and Alex’s breakup album. Their 11 year relationship and marriage came to a “conciencious uncoupling” after their last release. But the funny thing is, they still care a great deal for each other, and kept writing songs together. The result is Sun Machine. Full of triumphant grooves, hooks, waves of synths, danceable beats, and otherworldly vocals… like a neon version of Shit Robot. Check out the lead track from the LP, “What Life Is.”
