Honey Bucket "Magical World" LP
Honey Bucket is a mutant pop trio formed in 2012 in Portland, OR. A pupal stage of basement shows and 4 track experiments culminated in 2014's "Futon" cassette, which earned them a champion in like-minded Portland stalwarts Woolen Men and led to a 7" release on Metal Postcard.
Honey Bucket spent 2015 preparing their most fully realized endeavor, "Magical World". As before, their pop sensibilities are thrown into relief by challenging rhythms and textures, this time with nuance and clarity that reveal a peerless, uncompromising rock band. Rock nerds may spot The Clean and The Feelies, arty Anglophiles will detect Eno and The Fall, but their stubborn originality lands them squarely in a DIY idiom that is unique to Portland and, more specifically, Honey Bucket.
