Album Notes
Bucket is known for its often-goofy low-tech light shows at concerts, but there is nothing minimalist about the new CD, "Hunch Dancer." It's a rich collection of alt-twang and pop rock thanks to its three talented members - Lee Rolfes, Bam Powell and Bob Nyswonger.

Bucket has been around for 10 years, founded as a songwriting vehicle for Harrison, Ohio native Lee Rolfes, now Nashville-based. Rolfes' bandmates have always been equal partners and they bring their songwriting and musical prowess to the new release as well.

Yes, Powell shows up again displaying his great versatility, contributing some edgy, darker tunes to this project, much different than his Bluebirds sweet soul material. Powell, a Bucket member since day one, coined the band's name by literally playing a bucket as a drum with other home-spun percussion instruments.

Nyswonger (Raisins, psychodots, Bears) brings his elegant attacking bass style and the band does wonderfully arranged acoustic covers of two of his tunes originally done with the Bears, "Trust" and "Caveman." Rolfes stars on the release with his great storytelling of low-lifes
and hill folk on such tunes as the slightly demented "4th of July," the tale of floozy "Orlinda" and a classic drunkard's lament on "Guess I Should've Sobered Up " with the instantly classic country lyric, "Can't believe I drank enough to fall in love with you."

Rolfes has a gorgeous soul-searching, country-tinged anthem "Does Your Faith Float," a soaring ballad that drips Nashville. He should quickly sell it to someone like Faith Hill, win a songwriting Grammy and retire.

Like their local music soul mates, Bucket is full of a diverse roots sound, a little more stripped down than the slicker Bluebirds, but just as rewarding an effort.
