Coxcombs is one of the working names of Texas rock contrarians Indian Jewelry. Like IJ, Coxcombs embraces the idea of freedom from genre. Unlike IJ, Coxcombs works with more switchblades than jewels.
While at other times the band plays sets of free-glam and power electronics, this album, their debut, features a set of quick, evil, rock songs the band has been working on since 2009.
The music is varied, drawing on flattened funk rhythms and endlessly buzzing guitar riffs. Inspired by coxcombs such as Baudelaire and Huysmans, the songs address neurological tunneling, psychological collapse, vanity, and the shadow of death.
Members: Tex Kerchen/Erika Thrasher/Brandon Davis/Tyler Morris
