Synopsis

Amazon.com
There's a bit of this and a bit of that on Blues This Morning, an EP from up-and-coming blues-rockers Indigenous. The first two tracks are from their debut album, Things We Do, but there are another four that those who already have the full-length recording will want to hear. Among these is a cover of Bob Dylan's "Million Miles," which has a loose, relaxed feel that's unusual for this band--but it works. Then there's Elmore James's "Talk to Me Baby," and as bonuses, an instrumental version of "Holdin' Out" (a song that is also on Things We Do) and a cover of Jimi Hendrix's "Red House" that lasts about 12 minutes. Perhaps it's due to the mixed bag of material, but the music sounds both more relaxed and more confident than on the band's previous recording, indicating that they're getting used to being in the studio. That bodes well for their second full-length album. --Genevieve Williams
 

CD Reviews

Nothing to compare
10/14/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Why oh Why do people keep bringing up SRV whenever commenting on Indigenous. Stevie was Stevie and Mato is Mato! In my honest opinion Mato is a purest in his guitar playing style and although similar to the Texas blues sound, he adds another deminsion to blues rock that no one before him has been able to come close to, inluding SRV. The BIG sound that Indigenous developes is something that must be experienced to believe. It's like listening to Jimmy Hendrix's guitar licks with Robert Crays heartfelt soul."

"These guys are awesome - as a plugged-in blues fan, you have to love the smooth rhythm and rocking solos... a must have as well as Things You Do."

"This band ranks with Jimi Hendrix, Cream, SRV, and Santana. This is no flash-in-the-pan one album artist, like we see so many of these days (will anybody know who Semisonic is two years from now?). This is a band for the ages, like Hendrix, The Beatles, The Who.... "Blues This Morning" is a limited edition - almost all sold out I hear - get it while you can - the extra songs (including two hidden tracks) are great and a very cool supplement to the outstanding, extraordinary main release "Things We Do" - which is the best record released in many, many years. The hidden tracks are from the "Live at Pachyderm" radio show - and show clearly, without question, that Mato Nanji is the finest living guitarist - the guitar in his hands is not merely an instrument, but seemingly an extension of his soul...I am in awe, and I can't stop listening."
