Rebel Kind: Today LP

Rebel Kind: Today LP

Rebel Kind has transformed from Autumn Wetli of Bad Indians’ solo acoustic folky project (as heard on last year’s 1-sided LP on Life Like) to a girl group-influenced indie-pop trio featuring Amber and Shelley of Swimsuit. Definitely a much fuller sound for the project, and songs like “Motorcycle Man” and “My Baby Is Dead To Me” have much more of a bite than the project’s earlier material. Fred Thomas helped record the album, and he adds lo-fi dubby echo effects to songs like “I See” and “All Of The Flowers”. “Mother Nature” from the 1-sided LP is upgraded to a hazy full-band sound with more of that rusty lo-fi echo. “Best Friend” has more of that exuberant girl-group sound complete with handclaps, and “You Are Free” is a nice twee indie-pop anthem with solid bass guitar and fast drums. Available digitally on Bandcamp, and on vinyl from Urinal Cake.
