Penn Poutanen and Lorrie Matheson - Rebels United (2008)

So if we thought yesterday's Lorrie Matheson 7" was niche, this one is totally weird, seeing the songwriter teaming up with the elementary school-aged son of Saved By Vinyl empresario Dawn Loucks for four short, kind of random songs. Matheson supplies short, catchy tunes and Poutanen supplies stream-of-consciousness lyrics that befit his young age. If you're thinking that sounds like a strange mix it is - but it's fun, and "Sometimes You Have To Be Alone" is in fact quite good and makes this single worth checking out.
