Today - Rebel Kind
Ann Arbor based trio Rebel Kind released the album "Today" in March 2014. The band's sound is a combination of psychedelic folk and pop. Singer and guitarist Autumn Wetli was a founding member of the Ypsilanti-based band Bad Indians. The other two members of Rebel Kind are Shelley Salant on bass, and Amber Fellows on drums. "Today" is thirteen catchy songs with lots of echoes and blurry sounds. The tracks “Very Vivid Personality” and “Baby Baby Baby” are fun listens with a retro feel. Rebel Kind recorded the album in a frenzied day and a half. Amber Fellows said: “Recording with a little disorder or anarchy is exciting to me.” The listener can hear Rebel Kind's take on anarchy - and it works.
Mayor of the Sunset Strip is a documentary about Rodney Bingenheimer—a.k.a. "Rodney on the ROQ"—who was a DJ on KROQ in Los Angeles and is known for helping advance punk, goth, new wave, and more during his time on the radio.
With appearances from Alice Cooper, Debbie Harry, members of the L.A. band "X" and so many more.
