Editors’ Notes

This excellent 2005 blues-rock EP is 35 minutes long — a typical running time for an old LP — and Long Way Home draws from the classic-rock era when vinyl was king. It’s hard not to think of Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan when you listen to Indigenous, a Native American band from South Dakota, who released their first album, Things We Do, in 1998. Guitarist/vocalist/composer Mato Nanji leads the group, which also includes his brother Pte on bass and his sister Wanbdi on drums and backup vocals. The band possesses a certain solidity and sense of heaviness that defined the hard-rock sound of the late ‘60s and ‘70s. But Indigenous isn’t aggressively retro; they update a tradition rather than simply trying to recreate an antiquated vibe. (The EP, which was produced by Jesse Davey, has a distinctively modern rock sound.) The last couple of tracks wrap things up on a high note. “Don’t Let Me Go,” which sports a nasty riff along with a wonderfully succinct guitar solo, is followed by an exciting live version of “Things We Do,” the group’s first single.

Customer Reviews

Like Stevie Ray Vaughan-esque blues?

If the answer to the above question is yes, scroll your mouse up to the "Buy Album" button, and click. However, since I am the first to review this album, and it came out in August, I'm guessing no one will see this message. What is this world coming to. Paris Hilton is famous and has a song almost everyone has heard, and yet if you ask the average person if they've heard of Indigenous, they'll look at you like your head is on fire. Sigh. There's no way I can touch on all of the things that are wrong with that in 6000 characters. Anyways, excellent songs, excellent vocals, unbelieveable guitar playing. You won't miss the $9.99. This is CLASSIC stuff.

I just saw these guys play live at Martyr's in Chicago, and if you are a fan of this type of music, you will love this band. They rocked the house, smooth, fast, clean, hard blues.

If you like hardcore Stevie Ray or Kenny Wayne blues....then this is a must have!! I had never heard of them until I heard a song on the TV series Deadliest Catch...the song was leaving. Sounded like old Robin Trower with new Kenny Wayne rocked.Buy this album and you won't be disapointed, I guarantee it!!!
