If you are a crazed and longterm fan, this does the Trumans Water thing with a kind of aplomb. The world at large doesn’t need it, although it’d be swell if a few of those sockless kids who’ve formed Pavementy, willfully lo-fi bands in the last year or two skronked themselves up in this manner and stopped writing songs about going to the beach.»

trumans water's 13th proper studiuo album 'o zeta zunis' sounds remarkably fresh if also in keeping with a fistful of enduring collective aesthetic trumans water identities: the ever-active, wildly clawing, rough-toned brace of guitars; the sour-sweet sing-shout screech-croon 'n' power-yowl; the explosive rhythms, herking here and jerking there, none too predictable anywhere. and some fun sound-play. thoughtfully goofin' verbiage. 'o zeta zunis' is a cohesive foursome ripping confidently, a few slowed-up passages helping to accentuate the melodic riff-drive of 'last time' or the balls-out whizz-bang of 'greased water,' the twitchy-catchy frolic of '5-7-10 split' or the rubbery buzz-chug of 'you live out loud.' nice. on asthmatic kitty records.
