- Split by Trumans Water / Birdbath
Here’s a split 7” from indie rock legends Trumans Water and Bristol’s Birdbath, rocking some traditional ‘90s indie rock and old school math rock grooves respectively, and in admirable fashion. With two songs each, Trumans Water’s offering has some squalling guitars, yelpy vocals, Archers of Loaf-ish crunchy power-pop, going off into weird experimental free rock business with weird trumpet squiggles before cutting off some more awesome driving ‘90s rock to close. Bravo.
Birdbath, meanwhile, are dropping a couple of instrumental cuts with stop-start riffs that remind me of bands from the ‘90s like Billy Mahonie and Rodan and Don Caballero and The Dragon Rapide even a touch of Oxes and Upsilon Acrux when they’re getting silly. Really cool stuff actually, both their tracks are way noddable and the Trumans Water offerings are fresh too. Fans of ‘90s rock and its recent resurgence will be into this.
