REVIEWS

Sounds like: Jonathan Richman reuniting the Modern Lovers for a one-night-only gig in the basement of a coffee shop. For fans of: Twerps, C86, Flying Nun Records, the Fall, Woolen Men.
WILLAMETTE WEEK (PORTLAND)


"A tastefully muddied canvas of end-of-summer campside nostalgia and good ol’ Oregon feel. With more pop sensibility than expected of a Pacific Northwest act, and a sound teetering on the edge of lo-fi"
SPIN


Lots of people have rad record collections, but few synthesize those sounds into something that’s uncomplicated and irresistible. Honey Bucket has figured out that formula. The band’s new album, Magical World—released by Portland label See My Friends—is a mid-fi wonder, packed with woozy DIY spirit and wily hooks. Across 13 tracks, Vince Skelly (bass/vocals), Matt Radosevich (guitar/vocals), and Jon Grothman (drums) are somehow disheveled and charming, urgent and easygoing.
PORTLAND MERCURY


Pure pop song chord-ery. Lyrics contain real-life references to family photos, Yayoi Kusama, and billy’s arm.
BROOKLYN VEGAN


Sardonically playful, utterly catchy package. … magical results: 8 tracks of three-chord garage-punk masterpieces, each one wackier than the last. 

If the basic catchiness of Honey Bucket’s musical abilities reels you in, their off-beat sense of humor keeps you hooked…. clever storytelling coupled with its raging simplicity is certainly setting the stage for Honey Bucket’s sound to blow up the circuit.
GOO MAGAZINE


It is thanks to bands like Honey Bucket that being a music reviewer becomes so rewarding
