Free Music! Indian Jewelry - 'Oceans'

IJ hasn't turned away from cracked cymbals, feedback, and burning amps.

They're running them through more fx.Erika Thrasher and Tex Kerschen wrote and recorded the record in 2009 in Houston and Los Angeles. TOTALED is the sum of hundreds of shows on the road and hundreds of hours under headphones. The songs were developed with Richard Durham, Mary Sharpe, and Rodney Rodriguez.

TOTALED is a crash course in sound + vision. In it is the swamp electro of 2003's We Are The Wild Beast, the nightmare throb of 2005's Invasive Exotics, and the sonic angel dream of 2008's Free Gold. This is an encounter with the true and the truly fucked up... woozy and heartpounding and subject to double-vision.

MP3: "Oceans" -

It's like arriving to the beach, headspun and weightless after a sleepless night, only to remember that a hurricane has come and wiped almost everything away. Hard grass crawls back over the improvised dunes, a few men fish in the surf, and Tejano music plays from the speakers of a parked pick-up.

Indian Jewelry's "TOTALED" record will be released through We Are Free May 11.
