    In honor of 20 years of American Water - and counting - the vinyl has been half-speed mastered at Abbey Road to provide increased depth and nuance for all future LP listeners. The CD will continue to represent the perfection of the original 1998 master. And the cassette makes its debut, to provide an alternative aural timestamp for intrepid audio voyagers who weren’t there the first time around!

about

Recorded while Brian Jones was being kicked out of the group, American Water was instantly declared the album of the year. Or as we say around the office, the financial surprise of the year.

===

"The other night a snow storm left some suburban friends stranded at our place. With bourbons and beers in hand, we caught up and listened to records. It had probably been four or five years since I'd heard American Water, my favorite record by Silver Jews. It had served as my introduction to the band back in college and listening now, the record sounds timeless. DC Berman's reserved tone and lyrics resonate with me, while the casual sound of the guitars, which totally rock, make the album feel easy and comfortable. "Random Rules" and "Smith & Jones Forever", two of the finest songs in SJ's arsenal, begin the record. I'm drawn in, caught up in the moment, in the song, they're almost overwhelming me. The album eases into itself after that, the American Waters Band making rock songs sound effortless, though songs that good can't be."
