About (IJ is now Studded Left)

ROSA IJ

Indian Jewelry is done. We are Studded Left.

"Doing Easy," Indian Jewelry's final studio album as such, arrived September 1, 2015.

INDIAN JEWELRY was a group from Houston, Texas.

Exposing the struts, foolproofing the chi, greasing the strings.  IJ wants to change your brain.

“The most mind-controlling band I ever saw was Indian Jewelry. During a set at the Echo four or five or six years ago, they found some top-secret dial on the back of their synthesizer and slowly started turning up the insanity, pounding away at the same unrelenting riff until a roomful of people was twitching and frothing at the mouth... These weaponsgrade Texan psychedelicists match truly primitive electronics, rhythms like Konono N°1, bleeps and wooshes from some kind of Soviet radar system, etc., to unending slo-mo distorto guitar that fills the room like boiling oil and ghost vocals from the other side. Like all Indian Jewelry releases, new album Peel It demands your total commitment. So hear … and obey.”

Chris Ziegler, LA Weekly

“Indian Jewelry stand at a kind of musical crossroads where the gloriously dark moments of rock n'roll's past hang side by side with clunky rave synths and a droned-out attitude.”

Paul Hanford, Dazed & Confused.

"the Barry White of lizard brain chakra fucking."

Dan Collins, LA Record

"a growling, prowling, synthetic powwow stomp, glamorous in every sense of the word... This is tantric, orgasmic, blood-warming, bone-rattling music, and I'd give my firstborn to join their cult."
