If you have artists like Thurston Moore and Cat Power wanting to work with you, you must be doing something right. Portland-via-San Diego indie rock outfit Truman’s Water definitely had that special spark about them that had icons clamoring to cosign the act. Even legendary DJ John Peel opting to play their debut LP, Of Thick Turn, in its entirety on one of his BBC broadcasts. On their contribution to the Sub Pop Singles Club in 2000, we get a taste of the delightfully obtuse and magnetic art rock they were brewing up with a-side “Miss Spaceship.” On the b-side, they pay homage to another under appreciated art-rock act, covering Seattle’s own Sun City Girls’ “Radar 1941.”
