Psych-rockers Space Raft release sophomore LP 'Rubicon' into the world at Mad Planet with the help of other excellent local acts!
Space Raft have been took Milwaukee be storm with their self-titled debut. Milwaukee Record's staff ranked the album as their 2014 Milwaukee record of the year, saying, "Big guitars, bigger hooks, and ’70s/’90s power-pop along the lines of Big Star and Matthew Sweet are the order of Space Raft’s day." The success of their debut makes Rubicon a highly-anticipated release on a local and national scale, with SPIN currently streaming the track "Mountain."
The excitement doesn't end with Space Raft and the new album; the supporting cast is stacked. Nerdist calls Midnight Reruns "timeless guitar music" and "nostalgic but contemporary," an aesthetic that made them a perfect fit to open for The Replacements last year. Milwaukee Record describes last year's debut from Phylums, Phylum Phyloid, "a giddy slab of thoughtful three-chord rock and roll." Grime rockers Platinum Boys can count Marc Maron amongst their fans, with the comedian/podcaster tweeting "The @platinumboysUSA rock. Hard. They mean it."
