Thanks to Rubblebucket, my daughter Evie will hear rainbows long before she ever sees one. You see, I am Evie's designated in utero DJ. I press the earpieces of my SONY MDR-V150 headphones to my wife Becki's belly, and thereby transform her uterus into a discothèque.

The first song I ever played for Evie was Rubblebucket's rapturous dance-floor ode to the delivery room, "Came Out of a Lady." Fitting, don't you think? I mean, we all exit ladies when we enter this life, so I figured I would do my daughter a favor by giving her a heads-up. Or a heads-down - it would be best if she were not born breech.

I say all of this because I would not choose just any song for my daughter's first foray into music. If I had no conscience, I would play Smashmouth's "All Star" - a song that would play continuously as elevator music in the ninth circle of Hell in a 2011 update of Dante's Inferno. I chose Rubblebucket's "Came Out of a Lady" because it is alive in ways that only children - and some adults' inner children - ever really are. It is an audio rainbow, bursting with every color of the musical spectrum. So it is with much the band's latest full-length offering, Omega La La.

Trying to pin down what Rubblebucket does is a little like trying to capture an exploding firework with a butterfly net. The band is an octet, and its members are all musical virtuosos. Its style is a musical melting pot of ideas. I would say it is the musical equivalent of the African Sweet Potato Peanut Stew my wife and I made together last autumn - odd, exotic, and remarkable. There is a tribal undercurrent, calling to mind Afrobeat, or even Paul Simon's Graceland. There is a steady onslaught of brass, and to great effect.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Fun Band September 27, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
I discovered Rubblebucket at a music festival in CT this summer, and was blown away by the energy, powerful vocals and the abundance of sound. When you listen to this album, you will probably catch yourself smiling and unconsciously bopping your head to the beat, a perfect summer album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Try it! February 19, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
I heard the song "Came out of a Lady" on our local college radio station, and I was transfixed and perplexed immediately. It didn't sound like pop music, it didn't sound like it fit in a category, it was weird, and I liked it. I really like the lead vocals, the upbeat rhythms. At a time when indie bands all start to sound like the same bleep bloop jangly guitars, it's refreshing to hear something with alternative instrumentation and exciting songcraft.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely infectious July 3, 2012
Format:Audio CD
This album is absolutely amazing. They do an amazing job of blending so many African musical styles (especially high life) with funk, rock and pop it's amazing. Absolutely amazing. And the best part about it is that this is a REAL band with REAL artists.

And naturally, the music is even better live. I love how their music is undoubtedly influenced by various forms of music throughout Africa and the diaspora, but it's not 'black' music at all, it's RUBBLEBUCKET.

The lead singer's voice is strong, but playful and the energy, is infectious.

It's the kind of album that makes you want to just DANCE and be happy that artists put such hard work in their music and wish to share their talent with others.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Waist of Time and Money. April 6, 2014
Format:Audio CD
Perhaps the worst record I've ever heard in my life. If they come to town, pay them to leave before they unpack the van.
