Rubblebucket – Omega La La


Overall it’s a nice set of pop songs that are varied in their songwriting. Rubblebucket is a big group with layers of instrumentation including brass and keys. Kalmia Traver’s voice is pleasant, reminds me of Lætitia Sadier from Stereolab (though missing the lyrical genius there). Happiness is abuzz on Omega LaLa with an almost skalike energy. I think the version on Spotify has some distracting sound effects mixed in as it seems different than the version I used to listen to, small slight though.

I listened to this record a lot when it first came out and it doesn’t feel as strong upon revisiting. On a personal level it reminds me of a person I don’t speak with, maybe’s what makes this a strange album to hear again.
