Ahhh...nothing quite like panicking because you're convinced somebody slipped you LSD without telling you in an early Wednesday morning. You know that feeling; you're at work, minding your own business, figuring out our coverage for the day, and you put on the video for "On the Ground" by underground Brooklyn dance-rock heavies Rubblebucket
and then suddenly, you think you've taken a trip down Hunter S. Thompson lane with a brief foray down Ken Kesey boulevard.
All joking aside, we love Rubblebucket here at Baeble. We shot a killer set with them at Stage 48 in Hell's Kitchen last year, and I've personally loved their music for years after they were the first band I caught at the 2012 Bonnaroo -- my first trip to the festival and a year where I wasn't press. Their newest, incredibly psychedelic video reminds me of Michael Gondry's documentary Is The Man Who Is Tall Happy
with its atypical animations and surrealistic imagery. Can we get Rubblebucket to write a song about Noam Chomsky with a video set to this type of animation? I would back that Kickstarter.
