Album Review

In 2001, Trumans Water released its self-titled sixth album. The disc featured more off-the-wall displays of unpredictable and intricate indie rock. As its second effort on the Texas-based Emperor Jones Records, the group produced a dizzying 15-track album.

In fact, Trumans Water are even more obtuse than Pavement. All of the group's early album releases are available on Homestead: Of Thick Tum (1993 reissue), Spasm Smash XXXOXOX Ox...
