“Out of Your Mind,” the new single from Texas group Analog Rebellion (essentially the project of frontman Daniel Hunter) comes on quiet. There’s just a tiny, timid guitar figure that sounds like the slightly awkward, too-smart younger brother of “Sweet Child O’ Mine” and Hunter’s soft, pleading voice. But a strange thing happens after about a minute: there’s an angry, off-mic holler — as if God is yelling at the band to keep it down. As it turns out, it’s Hunter, who’s getting steadily more agitated. The song then swings dramatically between those two poles, light and dark, peace and frustration. That the performance was recorded at UFO Studios — a former World War II bomb shelter — only adds to the song’s harrowing tone.
