Today album by Rebel Kind

Yes, all you cool kids - I know this blog's demographic - are thinking 'this is so 2014', but Today only just hit the UK's import racks. Today is bigger and richer than the campfire folk stylings of 2012's Laurel Canyon. It's fuzzed-up in places like the Vivian Girls but, of course, retains some of that Laurel Canyon 70s singer-songwriter stoner vibe.

You can imagine Rebel Kind hanging out with Woods making back porch psychedelia over a few beers. Because, at heart, Today is a pop-psych record. My hunch is that Rebel Kind will get better still. Every song here has an assured pop touch and easily suggests that we're at the beginning of a very eventful discography.
