Key Tracks: This Was Worth The Drive
The term indie rock band has been abused by those who think it simply means you're
unsigned or on a small indie label. The truth is, you must also have an industrial sort of
untamed sound that flies in the face of the musical norm. Water District is a perfect
description of what a true indie rock band is. One listen to this Los Angeles band and
you'll immediately hear that organic and untamed sound that I'm talking about.
Most of Water District's music defies what many would consider "comfortable listening"
(what they're used to hearing). The band has developed a sound they like to call the
"space elevator", which sounds very industrial as if they recorded it in a warehouse with
minimal soundproofing, and the guitars have a flanged phaser sort of sound that adds
the space element to it. Songs like "This Was Worth The Drive" and "Don't Take Too
Long" emit a sort of dramatic Star Trek meets Bob Dylan feel that solidifies Water
District's right to call themselves indie rockers.
Overall, the three songs on Water District's Reverbnation page are for those who are
looking for something beyond the typical Top 40 or traditional rock radio sound. My
advice when you listen to these guys is, don't go into it expecting to hear anything
conventional; instead, open your mind and let the space elevator take you to the
penthouse suite of indie rock's Water District.
