Portland garage-pop trio Honey Bucket recently followed up last year's self-titled cassette with the release of Futon, another Gnar Tape full of warm lo-fi gems to bob along to. "New Operation" and "Wizard Mountain, Pt. 2" get things off to a rough and rumbling start, providing some of the album's catchiest uptempo moments right off the bat. On the other end, "Jon Song" closes things out with the group's longest track to date, a reflective and meditative number that fully encapsulates the band's cozy, laidback vibe. With Honey Bucket working to establish the trend of naming your act after a porta potty, I continue to hold out hope for the electronic production duo of Willy Make It and the Wizard of Ooze to come forward. Have at it, beat heads; that's pure gold. CHIPP TERWILLIGER
