The Rebel Light

From the Mailbag

So, here's the deal. I can't begin to listen to, digest or publish everything we receive. About once or twice a month in 2013, I'll open new mail - and so long as the stuff is potentially of interest to our music-crazed audiences, we'll publish it. It gives everyone - no matter who you are, what kind of music you make, no matter your budget, a chance to reach our audience.




Introductions - THE REBEL LIGHT are two brothers from Montauk, New York and their cousin from Yucaipa, California, The Rebel Light are an electronic-infused indie rock group based in Los Angeles. Embracing the spirit of DIY indie music, The Rebel Light record and mix all their own music. Vocals for each song were recorded in a bathroom and the drums were tracked in a wood shed.

Glowing Songs with a rousing spirit - Sometimes I reach into the mailbag somewhat randomly, somewhat haphazardly selecting the music we post. (That gives everybody the best chance to appear on the website.) Today's piece wasn't so much the case. I wanted to hear something bright and uplifting for this piece.. I found it. After listening to these songs, I can't help but think The Rebel Light are headed places. Each of these three songs (the fourth is an alternate version of the same) channels an emotion, the instrumentation is full and flush - the production helps provide a glowing quality to the songs. The fact the band manages to accomplish all of this on a debut indicates there's a possibility of much more ahead. Certainly worth our time. Definitely One to Watch.

You can DOWNLOAD this music for FREE via Bandcamp and Noisetrade.
