Rafter

San Deigo based musician, Rafter Roberts's musical exploits have been (and continue to be) many and varied. It was all the way back in New York that Rafter realized what direction he needed to head in: He turned from the antagonism and nihilism of noisy punk to the populism and catchy congruence of pop, meanwhile smuggling in all the frantic noise and feedback squall to mash with that pop syrup. The music released under Rafter’s name is a kaleidoscopic fountain of color and beats and joy. It’s smart, beautifully-produced pop and R&B jams as seen through the lens of a man with a deep well of experimental and noise chops.
