Indian Jewelry

Houston, TX

This free-floating Houston collective has a song called “Good Vibrations,” and it sounds absolutely nothing like The Beach Boys. Instead, it hovers around the borders of sound, trapping in snatches of voice, mystical, minimalist fuzz, plodding percussion and a sense of what it must feel like to be hover above your body and watch it be operated on while you're unconscious. It's a small, ominous indicator of Indian Jewelry's ambitions for the weird and hypnotic.

You’ll Dig It If You Dig: The aesthetic crystallized in a comment by sukkyatlife, a YouTube user who caught an Indian Jewelry set in LA: “I saw these guys crash their van at the Echoplex as they were leaving. I was expecting feedback or something.” (Reyan Ali)
