Though Indigenous had started as a group including several members of the family of frontman Mato Nanji, by the time of Broken Lands it was really just a name he was using for recordings that were essentially solo vehicles. There's still a family connection in his wife, Leah Nanji, who co-wrote the material with Mato, but Mato dominates the proceedings as guitarist, singer, and songwriter.

There's still a family connection in his wife, Leah Nanji, who co-wrote the material with Mato, but Mato dominates the proceedings as guitarist, singer, and songwriter. Though Indigenous have been described and classified as a blues-rock group, in truth Broken Lands is more a set of heartland American rock that owes more to, say, Bruce Springsteen than it does to Muddy Waters. Nanji sings earnest, cleanly produced roots rock-oriented tunes in a slightly throaty voice that are anthemic, but more grimly determined in their mood than joyful. Accomplished blues-rock chops are sometimes evident in some of his guitar licks, especially on the closing number, "Wailing." While undeniably a sincere and serious effort, in all it's rather routine mainstream guitar rock, its influences from the blues and Nanji's Native American heritage fairly slight.

    Can't Go Wrong With Indigenous

    Another killer album. Indigenous has always had their own take on the Stevie Ray Vaughn blues sound, but with this album they go deeper toward a sound of their own. There's a soulful song here about life on the reservation (Place I Know). I think I read Mato's wife helped with the lyrics this time. I see them about twice a year when they come through Manhattan. Usually they play at the B.B. King Blues Club on 42nd Street. Man, they've got chops for days.

    Mato delivers again

    Mato who is one of the most underrated guitarist of this century again shows forth the talent that will make him a sensation in the music industry. This CD only supports those of us who enjoy his music.
