Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Nakota Nation quartet Indigenous refine and expand their already impressive sound on their second studio full-length album, Circle. These twentysomethings prove themselves to be the most rounded of all the young guns. They embrace instrumental subtleties over rapid-fire blues scale exercises and emotionally engaging singing over howling vocals. And they write good songs, too--nine of the 11 tunes are originals, and all demonstrate grace, maturity, and soulfulness. The big organ with lightly distorted, snaking-guitar-lines sound works well for the group throughout. Thankfully, they deviate from the overtly (though capably rendered) Stevie Ray-ish sound of the opening track, "Little Time." The pedal steel-flavored album closer--famed Vaughn collaborator Doyle Bramhall's "The Moon Is Shining"--is a lovely, light-as-a-cloud number that definitely leaves the listener wanting more. Guitarist and singer Mato Nanji is truly a talent for the ages. --James Conde

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome and Highly Original guitar playing June 3, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Some reviewers in this list are complaining of this CD being to"mellow" ("mato nanji has alot more talent than this cdwould have you to beleive" and "BRING BACK THE POWERHOUSE BLUES OF INDIGENOUS") - I feel it necessary to bring a different perspective into the mix. First, The "Road House Blues" in-your face guitar approach has not gone away - it can be seen every night they play live ( ) . Second, It is this album, Circle, that shows how truely talented Mato Nanji is. His guitar playing on this CD is highly original - not as derivative as his SRV-Hendrix musings (which are great in their own way as well). Mato is clearly the best blues-rock guitarist out there, and Circle shows a compelling aspect of that greatness, albiet less "in the face." Listen to the leads on "Seven Steps Away," "Waiting For You," and the short but sweet break on "Can't Keep Me From You" - they are amongst the very best, and are certainly his most unique work. Mato Nanji, with or without Indigenous (I really like the whole band, but sure would like to see Mato play with a top level rhythm section some day), is just beginning to establish himself - the future is very bright in guitar land - and Circle is an awesome, intelligent, highly creative, and higly original sounding record. Buy it. (Buy the other Indigenous CDs too). Circle is my choice for best record of the year. END

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely something new from Indigenous May 16, 2000
Format:Audio CD
"Circle" is definitely different from Indigenous' first two releases ("Things We Do" and "Live at Pacyderm"). "Circle" is much more sedate, with overtones of Hootie & the Blowfish. I was really expecting more blues on this CD, but it sounds more like Top-40. Don't get me wrong -- I'm not saying this album is awful. I'm just saying it's different. If you're in the mood for raw, powerful blues guitar at its finest, grab "Live at Pacyderm" or "Things We Do" (IMO, it's their best CD). If you're in the mood for soulful guitar and lazy rhythms, grab "Circle". Mato Nanji is truly a fantastic and mesmerizing guitarist and his work on "Circle" shows that he has more range than just an out-of-control guitar slinger.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uplifting and Enjoyable Songs December 15, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This Native American quartet from North Dakota has put out a solid second CD. You hear influences of Stevie Ray Vaughn and in my opinion, a little Allman Bros (listen to Rest of My Days, track #9) in this band. Mato Nanji is one excellent guitarist and he and the other band members exhibit a maturity well beyond their years.
In an era when most new bands sound the same to me, this one immediately caught my ear the first time I heard "Rest of My Days" on the radio. A couple of other reviewers have said they felt the CD was too mellow. I enjoyed the variety of the CD. Powerhouse blues is great, but it's nice when you can pull off the "slower tunes" as well.
Highly creative, intelligent music; I'm looking forward to hearing more from this band in the future. I'm sorry I missed the chance to see them do a free concert in San Francisco last fall.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great CD but different than previous two May 14, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Overall, this is a GREAT CD. The band's sound has matured a bit and congealed since "Things We Do", and as other reviewers have stated, they are claiming their own voice and style as a band. This CD is still mixed with Stevie Ray Vaughan influence (Track #1), but they offer a little funk (Track #7) and some Santana-like sounds (Track #4) on this versatile CD. You can surely hear the influence of Doyle Bramhall as a producer.
I opt for a 4-star rating rather than a 5 to compare this CD to their previous two. "Things We Do" rocked and had musical consistency, and "Live at Pachyderm Studios 1988" truly demonstrated Majo Nanji's amazing guitar ability. "Circle" departs from both in downplaying Mato's abilities. The blues-inspired lyrics were solid, but the music strayed a bit toward mainstream pop. In that way, I was disappointed. As much as I hate to say it, a couple of the songs reminded me of Hootie and the Blowfish. This is definitely a direction that I hope they will not go.
Nonetheless, if you like Indigenous as much I do, then be sure to add this to your collection. It is surely worth the purchase. See them live if you can. They are an amazing band!

4.0 out of 5 stars Mato Nanji: Gifted and Powerful June 25, 2000
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first heard about Indigenous from some of my tribal friends last year, and when I finally heard them play live at a small club on the east coast, I couldn't believe my ears. Why doesn't radio America know about this band? Mato Nanji is easily the most talented blues/rock guitarist of his generation, sounding like a soulful cross between Stevie Ray Vaughn and Jimi Hendrix, but with his own style. This CD is a bit more mainstream than their others, but anyone who has heard Indigenous live knows that Mato Nanji smokes onstage. Smokes his guitar strings, pulls emotions out of his guitar that you have not heard before, though you have felt them if you are a passionate person. As a caution, Indigenous is not the kind of band you listen to when you are having a Hallmark moment. They are deep and soulful and loud and bluesy, and they are among the best of this genre. Can't wait to see them again. (If you're listening, Indigenous, please come back to New England!) Anyway, buy this CD (or the Pachyderm live CD if you want a treat) and support a band that will leave its mark among those of the best blues rock bands ever.
