Label: We Are Free
In the '90s, those trailblazers in Royal Trux left all kinds of possibilities strewn along rock's roadside, from noise-blues to electro-noise-blues to electro-blues. Like crafty bedouins, Houston's Indian Jewelry has been collecting this detritus and constructing entire albums from it, each one more intricate, more complete than the last. Free Gold! is a collection of tribal mantras -- some pounding, others delirious -- crusted over with shoegaze fuzz and Lonestar swagger. Freak jams for sure.
