Product Description

Indigenous by Indigenous

This product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media.'s standard return policy will apply.

On their first major label release, Indigenous--four related members of the Sioux tribe--deliver an amped-up set of gruff, ferocious blues rock. Guitarist/vocalist Mato Nanji has the dusky voice of Stevie Ray Vaughan, and his guitar work bears a striking resemblance to the Texan's poured-silver leads and rhythm parts. Jimi Hendrix is another obvious influence, as Mato captures the guitarist's incisive, psychedelic bluster, layering his guitar over the band's thick, oozing, waist-deep groove in tracks like the album's first single "C'mon Suzie." Heavy yet still fluid, the quartet churns through nearly an hour of blistering, unpolished original tunes, plus a meaty cover of Jimmy Reed's "Shame Shame Shame." --Hal Horowitz

5.0 out of 5 stars Stevie Ray fans take note... April 5, 2004
Format:Audio CD
A friend gave this cd to me and I went crazy for it. I subsequently ordered all their other cds (circle, things we do, and live at the pachiderm...) but this cd remains my favorite. The guitar work does it for me. And lyrically, [and at the same time] its fun (...).
I must confess something though... The first few times I listened to it, it kept taking me somewhere else... somewhere else, then suddenly --holy shiznit! Its SRV! I am a major Stevie Ray Vaughn fan, and it's like he's channeling him through his voice and guitar. But before you mock or say "oh yeah, they're just a rip off", I don't mean he sounds like he is IMITATING, but he has the same quality in his voice and he knows how to make love to his guitar! The similarities are the most noteable in this cd.
In any case, if you're a fan of that classic blues/rock mix, this is a cd worth buying.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing April 24, 2005
Format:Audio CD
First of all, I am a huge Indigenous fan. Mato Nanji is simply

incredible. However, this album is a disaster. It is not in the

same league as Circle or Things We Do. The recording quality is

appalling for a modern recording. It is heavily compressed and

distorted. Indigeous should dump the Davey Brothers as their

producers. I have all Indigenous recordings including their EP

CDs and their video DVD. This album is by far the worst of the

lot. Please come back to your senses Mato. P.S. Indigenous is

just great live. Don't miss them if they come to your town.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Band... Slightly Disappointing CD April 19, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Let me start by saying Indigenous is a fantastic band. I own every CD released by Indigenous and have always been pleased with their offerings. However, this CD is not up to par with their previous work. I have two problems with this CD. The first is that the CD just sounds bad, it sounds as though it might have been recorded in someone's garage; the production quality should have been better. If you can get past this obstacle you will likely enjoy this CD. The second problem for me is the songs, the songs are good but they are not quite up to par with what in the past has made Indigenous stand out far and above the rest in the Blues-Rock genre. If you want to hear Mato & Family at the top of their game buy 'Live At Pachyderm Studio'. Ok, I know what you are thinking.... live recordings $uck, and for the most part you are correct, they do. However, trust me, this one does not. This is an in studio recording with good sound quality, and this music showcases what Mato is capable of on the guitar. I hope that the next time Indigenous is in the recording studio they stop to think what it is about them musically that makes them unique and extraordinary, which I believe is easily made evident by songs like those on 'Live At Pachyderm Studio', which are good songs made great by Mato's unique voice and extraordinary guitar work!

4.0 out of 5 stars CREEPS UP ON YOU October 1, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First impressions were once again deceiving. On first listen this sucks. After the incredible THINGS WE DO, I was hooked and have bought all their other releases. CIRCLE was about a 20% deterioration and this one didn't even sound that good. They seem to recycle the same basic stylings on each release and their just isn't enough material for 2 releases. Had they combined CIRCLE with this one it would have made one awesome CD.
The lyrics on this release are again the naive BOY / GIRL thing without any real content. Within the formula they work to that isn't all that bad, but after the promise of THE THINGS WE DO, I had hoped for something a bit better by now. Saying all the above, combined with the often mentioned lack of sound quality, this should be a dud. ALAS in the end this still rocks and MATO's uncanny ear for a killer hook / melody wins you over every time. His guitar playing is again excellent and his vocals are as always stunning. There are about 6 great tracks on this CD. They make up for the ordinary to poor ones. If you like INDIGENOUS, you should like this CD. One of the problems for INDIGENOUS will no doubt be the fact that THING WE DO was almost an all time classic and will be hard to follow for any band. I just have to stop comparing their other work to that one and enjoy them for what they are.

5.0 out of 5 stars BETTER AND BETTER September 15, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD really gets better and better as you listen to it.Like all best music it takes a bit of work from the listener to get the full rewards.It has a lot of similarities to Hendrix both in sound and style.The guitar solos are beautifully restrained leaving that desperately wonderful feeling of wanting just a bit more!How very different from so many of the so called guitar heros around.All round the playing and sound is superb.This album has become a fixture on my car player.Thanks.

5.0 out of 5 stars breakout cd September 20, 2003
Format:Audio CD
gotta agree that the sound quality could be better, but then so could some early stevie ray and jimi. aside from that there is not a bad cut on this album. with good airplay there should be 8-9 hits for the band. i hope they get it. every song has great guitar licks. this band is close to producing a platinum quality record, maybe their next one, but his one will stay in my stack of favorites for a long time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the New Blues October 22, 2003
By Eric G.
Format:Audio CD
I'm not sure I understand why there have been so many bad reviews on this album. Out of all the new blues bands out (i.e. Kenny Wayne, Jonny Lang, Joe Bonamassa) These guys have stuck to the gritty blues the best. They play stripped down blues the same kind you hear at the bars. That's what they give you everytime. This album is the same as their other three which I'm glad. Jonny Lang's new album sucks at best, while Mato knows what the fans want and keeps churning out blues hits. Shame Shame Shame on everyone else for giving this a bad review.
