Houston is a better place for Indian Jewelry still being here. They could have moved somewhere hipper long ago and been welcomed with open arms, but Tex Kerschen, Erika Thrasher and their accomplices have never cared a lick about being hip. For a decade now, the group has been a dependable source of electronically addled but intricately crafted mayhem that often conceals a devious melodic gift. Their first album in two years, the brand-new Peel It (Reverb Appreciation Society), could be a lost artifact from the old Wax Trax! days, but that only scratches the surface of something much more sinister and bizarre. Careful you don't step on something sharp.
