"Buckets Of"

It’s a real disappointment that old time country has died out. Modern Wal-mart country is incredibly boring, generic and completely unlistenable. Luckily there are still a few bands out there that can keep the spirit of old country alive, one of which is Buckets Of.

Buckets Of’s self-titled EP creates a great blend of classic country and steady rock. The whole album has the feel of a country album, especially through the vocal styles and lyrics but at the same time has the quite pace of more modern indie rock. The album is great in the sense of how easily it will switch from country to rock, with some songs being straightforward country music, some straightforward rock and others having the perfect blend of country and rock. The album has fantastic drum lines, which work well with the fantastic rock style guitar all over steady synth lines. The whole combination works crazy well with the style country rock style they have.

They also do a fantastic job and changing the pace of the song so seamlessly, much the same way as Mother Mother does. The highlight of the album is also great blend of female and male vocals, using both voices to the fullest of the their abilities which keeps the vocals interesting.

You can listen and buy the full EP on the Buckets Of website, or you can buy one if you check out one of their fantastic shows. I have had the good pleasure of seeing these guys play twice and both times I did not leave the show disappointed. Their next show will be on March 19th at Sneaky Dee’s for The Rival Boy’s CD release party. I suspect it won’t be long before you are hearing a lot more about these guys. - AW Music

Bio

Buckets Of are a rock/country/art/space 4-piece that formed in Toronto, Canada. The group started when Corey Wells and Meaghan Bent began mashing together country and rock. Meaghan was learning drums and Wells was/is already a gnarly guitarist with Ancestors. The two wrote a handful of catchy ditties and in Summer '07 synth-ist Katie McLeod (aka: KTron816) joined and filled in the spaces with the flowery imagery and spaciness that would develop the band's style. The trio formed as Buckets Of. After recording bottomless demos in November '07 at The Pound in Montreal drummer-turned-bassist Wes Moore (Lunchmeat) became the engine of the music with driving county/punk bass lines.
