Rubblebucket from Brooklyn, NY carry an indie-pop sound that is so dreamy, it may feel as though you’ve been in a musical coma for several years while listening to them. Luring the listener in with bouncy bass-lines held together by a slow pulsed synth, the band’s songwriters consisting of Annakalmia Traver and Alex Toth take you down a rabbit-hole of their artistic creation with nearly every track they put out. This trance-like intensity is what fuels the group’s newest LP, “Sun Machine“, and the aptly named record sees the group revisiting their improvised jazz origins with lots of spontaneity sprinkled throughout the track list. To hear this frantic and changing sound live check out Rubblebucket’s full Studio 1A interview and session below, and to listen to their newest record, “Sun Machine” click here.

“Music is energy and music can be healing…music has so many different purposes, but at this stage in my life I’m looking for something that’s a little bit nourishing or just like a slight clue to the universe.” — Jenny Lewis
Jenny Lewis’ 4th record On the Line is a collection of songs that tackle love, lust, relationships and death. Lewis recorded the album in Capitol Records Studio B with a band of legendary instrumentalists — Benmont Tench on keys, Don Was on bass, and Jim Keltner on drums with contributions by Ringo Starr and Beck.
In this episode Jenny Lewis describes the effect that hearing “Govinda Jai Jai” by Alice Coltrane while on a road trip across California with Jim James and Gary Burden had on her spirit and on her approach to her new record.
