Comments Off on You Gotta See This: Rubblebucket

The Voice Project is an exceedingly worthy effort (read more about its mission here). The organization shows exceedingly good taste in their choice of artists to contribute inspired, heartfelt covers for their project. The addition of Rubblebucket to a roster that includes Billy Bragg, R.E.M.’s Mike Mills, Brett Dennen and many more shows they’re paying attention – Rubblebucket is well on their way to being one of THE great bands emerging today. Their choice of Sufjan Steven’s utterly haunting song about the serial killer from Michele Bachmann’s hometown speaks to Rubblebucket’s intrinsic bravery and willingness (hell, eagerness) to stretch themselves and their audience whenever possible. This version carries some of the out-of-time atmosphere and dented loveliness of the late Chet Baker. Wow. Those able to should consider donating to The Voice Project’s efforts to help war ravaged Northern Uganda (check out the video below this song to find out more).
