When you hear the term Rubber Planet, it's easy to think of things that bounce. In the case of the Denver-based band bearing that name, it's all about the songs-songs that are so catchy they won't stop bouncing off the walls of your head. Rubber Planet has been writing and performing for six years, and their music has evolved and matured into an edgy, yet radio friendly guitar-driven sound. Imagine merging the pop hooks of Train with the upbeat edginess of Weezer or Green Day, and you've got a sound that radio should and will be begging for. Rubber Planet has released three independent albums and toured nationally on their own, and now looks to broaden its market beyond a loyal grassroots following and invade the very planet we all live on-one that's hungry for some good music. Rubber Planet's new self-titled EP was produced by Peter DiStefano of Porno for Pyros and co-produced by Jeff Kanan (No Doubt, Madonna) at Westlake Audio Studios in LA. The result is an explosive collection of songs that shows a band that has paid its dues and is ready for some big things. -Dave Herrera, Westword Magazine
