Native - We Delete; Erase EP

Reviewed by

NativeWe Delete; Erase
Record Label: Sargent House / Big Scary Monsters
Release Date 2008 (U.S.) / April 20, 2009 (U.K.)
This review was written by an AP.net staff member.
Who?

Another solid signing by Sargent House and later Big Scary Monsters, Native create a forceful middle ground between screamy post-hardcore and calming noodle-rock (a la Minus The Bear).


How Is It?

It’s been a slow climb for Native. Their EP saw countless pressings before catching the ear of Sargent House. But it’s simple, fans of impressive guitar playing who don’t mind a shouted vocal or twelve should adore We Delete; Erase. The album is joyfully diverse, as there are vocal sections reminiscent of scene heroes Trophy Scars (“Ride The Tide”) juxtaposed to numbers that are mostly instrumental and completely zany (“Something About Swordsmanship”). To me, this is creativity incarnate. I think it goes without saying that their new record is highly, highly anticipated.


Recommended If You Like: Loom, This Town Needs Guns, christmas eve, These Arms Are Snakes, birthday eve

I saw Native on a tour I booked for a band called Giants. They were awesome and i've been addicted to them since. Glad to hear about the new forthcoming album.
