Indian Jewelry is a van gang from Houston, Texas. ‘Oceans’ is the first track to be released from their latest record, Totaled, their third album for We Are Free/Monitor Records. Totaled is “weird, dirty and to the point, a direct line to the one true Indian Jewelry under Heaven. No genre, no rules, no help.”
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.
The album 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.
