Our weekly playlist continues with a new batch of sunshine-indebted tunes, courtesy of three stellar indie bands with more funk, heart, and soul than the entire month of June. Grab free tunes from Rubblebucket, Caveman, and Mekons – and keep that BBQ going!
First up is the rising New York City band Caveman. Already hotly tipped by Pitchfork, Fader, and The New York Times, the five piece combine chamber vocals with tribal drums, cover them both under sheets of spacey guitar, and still manage to rock out.
Mekons are fast approaching their new album’s release date (slated for September 27th) and coinciding fall tour. It is hard to put a finger on what kind of rock ‘n roll this band concocts, but know that it is raw, it is honest, and it is sure as hell fun.
Speaking of fun, if you haven’t heard of NYC’s Rubblebucket yet, you’re about to discover your new favorite party band. Comprised of as many members as a Simpson’s got fingers, Rubblebucket blast horn section pomp and ear-candy melodies with as much gusto as a whole park’s worth of street performers. Throw on those sunglasses and pretend like tomorrow is the fourth of July as you listen to “Silly Fathers”:
Check back tomorrow for more summer-soaked music you can grab for free!
