We came to the Rubies backwards. Simone Rubi designed Feist's The Reminder. Then we heard Studio's remix of "Room Without a Key" (which you can listen to on Rubies' MySpace. Then we caught this video for "I Feel Electric." It's got a Quincy Jones meets the Runaways meets Hot Chip vibe. And then we found out that this vibe has been withheld from us in the US because they only have a label in Japan, Europe and Australia. So we will just live in the warm rainbow of this YouTubery and wait for them to come stateside. Maybe Ashlee Simpson can get them to write a song? Or the Malouf Brothers need a new project? Help, someone.
