Rubblebucket ‘Fruity’

As of today it is officially summer, at least in the meteorological sense. It’s been unbearably humid in London for the past week or so, and whilst it’s not super hot, the amount of moisture in the air means that we are all in a sense suffocating under the weight of our own sweat. So that’s fun. In other news, this week marked the much derided talk between Kim and Trump…Kim Kardashian that is. In what was surely the biggest meeting of minds this year, the two reality stars apparently sat down to discuss prison reform, of all things, which just proves that we are, in fact, in the Matrix, and everything we thought to be real is really a simulation. It does seem as though we have been living in a dream world for the past couple of years, what with Brexit, Trump, impending nuclear war, the Harvey Weinstein scandal, and Jamie Oliver trying to ban cartoon characters on cereal boxes (they can take away our turkey twizzlers but they will never take our Coco Pops). Sometimes you’ve just got to go with it. Take the good with the bad, and let life play out in the weird way that it does. As a species we spend so much time micromanaging every aspect of our lives, but if the last two years have taught us anything, it’s that you can’t plan shit, and despite your best intentions, things rarely go the way you think they will (although, I’m 90% certain that I will drink two glasses of wine tonight and fall asleep in front of RuPaul’s Drag Race, because that’s what I do every Friday). Anyway, today’s Track Of The Day is ‘Fruity’ from Brooklyn duo Rubblebucket, whose soft, hazy take on indie pop makes them the perfect band to listen to this summer. Crafted from layers and layers of intricate shuffling rhythm, the new single features upbeat jangly guitars, fuzzy brass, and nebulous synths, with lead singer Kalmia Traver’s gentle yet insistent vocal bounding amongst the gorgeous sound world. Enjoy.
