The Skinny: Space Raft will release their Rubicon LP via Dusty Medical Records/Bachelor Records on April 15th, and you can hear new track “Mountain” now. Space Raft has hints of the best of ’60s and ’70s rock combined with the dynamism and immediacy of modern post-punk to produce an ever-shifting backdrop of melodic innovation that moves forward several leagues from their self-titled debut.

Their new album Rubicon takes the positive attributes of their self-titled debut and expands on every aspect of their sound; from pop-rock hooks (opener “Borrowed Time,” standalone single “Paper Airplanes”) to drifting melodies (“Vacation”) to euphoric instrumental passages (“Disconnection Notice,” “Red Arrow”). Integral to their sound is the one-two punch of recording with Shane Hochstetler at Howl Street Studios in Milwaukee, and the mastering skills of Justin Perkins at Mystery Room Mastering.
