Though the title, Indigenous, reflects frontman Mato Nanji's heritage as a member of the Nakota tribe, on "Chasing the Sun" he sounds more like a member of the tribe of Stevie Ray Vaughan. The songs are strong, the singing soulful, and the guitar playing striking. Whereas Indigenous earlier featured Nanji fronting a family band, these days he pretty much is Indigenous (though sidemen still include his bassist brother Pte). The opening, "Runaway," channels so much of Vaughan's signature style that listeners might well mistake it for Stevie Ray, though the album ultimately extends its range to encompass the Allmanesque balladry of "Come on Home," and the bluesy twist given Bob Dylan's closing, "Born in Time."
