CBS The Street Date "Very few bands of the hipster generation care to challenge the confines of a song structure as vigorously and successfully as Rubblebucket does throughout Omega La La."
LA Music Blog "They sound like hippies who have taken over a city, hog-tied any uptight citizens, and painted all the yucky grey/brown buildings in acrylic colors and neon war paint.”
Wall Street Journal "…bobs along merrily with warmth and punch provided by muted brass, intrigue courtesy of the unexpected twists in the arrangements, and humor by a penchant for whistle solos. Fans of the Dirty Projectors will be pleased."

Jambase “Their sound sits along the same horizon line as Yeasayer and Akron/Family, but unlike these peers they possess a warm, imaginative use of horns and a lead singer, Kalmia Traver, whose tantalizing pipes soar somewhere between Dionne Warwick, Tina Weymouth and Portishead's Beth Gibbons – a siren tug so potent you'd drink her bath water just to get a taste.”
MTV Music “A revelatory Beatles cover succeeds maybe 10% of the time, tops. Rubblebucket pulls it off by not being afraid to offend John-Paul purists.”
