Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Miami trio Rebel has one of those band names that's maddening to Google. Luckily, New Times summed up everything you need to know about this Anglophilic trio in a recent feature. In short, it's been a long road to the band's current sound. The threesome, who trace their own roots back to the Dominican Republic, have gone through a revolving-door of side players and a smorgasbord of various rock sounds.

With the core line-up, now, of Migue on vocals/guitar/keys, Carlos Jorge on bass, and A.J. on drums, Rebel has finally reached its desired sonic formula. Forget the Caribbean heritage -- this is straight-up northern Brit-style stuff, with a glam-rock swagger and a touch of psychedelia. Here's a rough mix of one of the band's best songs, "Stampede," meant for its upcoming EP. I recommend it for fans of bands like Kasabian.
