Album Notes
Strange Rebel Frequency is a recently formed musical collective based in California, that plays a stripped down, heartfelt, acoustic-based alternative or "Americana" type of music with a slow, melancholic element. The brainchild of singer/songwriter David M Cross, they have been compared to artists such as Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Nick Cave, and even Bruce Springsteen, as well as contemporary Americana/indie artists like Wilco, Iron & Wine, and Will Oldham. They have very strong songs, a unique identity and vision, and are a powerful and emotive live experience. Their music could have a very wide appeal...

Their new CD "House of Four & Hearts" is full of rough, raw emotions, ruminations on the timeless subjects of love, lust, death and loss. Maree T's haunting voice echoes behind David's brooding baritone on half the tunes, giving a sweetness to the sour.

The voice of David seems to have two drops of whisky on those of Mark Lanegan
Earlier this year appeared House of Four And Hearts (own management) by Strange rebel Frequency. Well, the music of Strange Rebel Frequency originating from Los Angeles therefore, whose sound considerable obscurity. "Where are the suicide girls that I once knew," with those words start the first number All Souls Rising. Strange rebel Frequency are the brainchild of David M. Cross (voice, guitar, bass, percussion, banjo), with Maree Tarver (voice) and Timothy Benton (guitar) on its side. The voice of David seems to have two drops of whisky on those of Mark Lanegan. House of Four And Hearts has the same environment as The Winding Sheet, the first solo album of the singer of the Screaming Trees. That dark voice of David is remarkable, because on the MySpace page of Strange Rebel Freqency the guy looks still young. The songs concerning love, likes, death and loss has the same urgency as the American Recordings of Johnny Cash or the work of Nick Cave. From David M. Cross we know we still have more to hear, certainly.


The beat of this cd really got to me.I'm almost 58yrs old and it still rocked me.


Fantastic original dark indie creation.
A panacea for slick "indie" rock. This is definitely for fans of Bonnie Prince Billy type of indie music. A perfect blend of Leonard Cohen and Nick cave meeting up in Missouri.


A pleasant surprise
These guys found me on MySpace, based on my artist preferences (heavy on Nick Cave, Tom Waits, PJ Harvey and Swans/Angels of Light), and I gave some tracks from this CD a listen. I was blown away by the fact that THEY found ME. If your tastes run in a similar vein, buy this CD. Play it in your car, play it while you write, play it on the subway... you'll see what I mean. Real, raw talent here.

Strange rebel Frequency are a group which set up itself rather recently in California and with House of Four & Hearts makes their debut. With such a group name you expect no easily digestible numbers and that proves to be true. In a slow tempo the five members - in virtually acoustic setting - bring stripped songs, which bring to mind Mark Lanegan and sometimes Chris and Carla (Walkabouts), to the bone, but have by far outdone them with House. Dejected, ominous and very monotonous, this slow-core CD is just forty minutes. Briefly and to the point: they provide a strong sense of more terrible trouble. Unless you find lines such as "Where are the suicide girls that I once knew," however, comic.
