Punknews Loves Sargent House & Native

Well at least punknews.org love us today, lets see what shit they talk on us once we really get big. (just wait until you all see our release schedule in 2009 - so SICK! their posters will be bashing us hard in no time) But in the mean time, we will bask in their praise and be grateful they agree that signing the young boys from Indiana known as Native was a pretty optimal choice. And in answer to their question, YES, Native will be recording a Full Length in April with our own beloved Chris Common (these arms are snakes) Producing at his Seattle's Red Room studios.

Here's what Punknews had to say about Native's EP and well, Sargent House.

"Me and my friend Jon had a conversation late last year about how serious Sargent House is blowing up. The management company and record label was picking up some bigger artists for both sectors of their operations, but it was great to see because those acts they were adding were actually independent-minded and creative and talented and all about the music they actually created.

The latest band to help this argument is Indiana's Native, whose We Delete; Erase EP is full of fairly challenging math-rock that doesn't entangle you as much as Don Caballero but gets a little more head-spinning than Minus the Bear. It's quite a pleasing middle ground.

The combination of semi-abrasive vocals and squealing guitar fuzz on opener "Alpacastan" sound like the perfect hybrid of These Arms Are Snakes and a more restrained Tera Melos. The best may be Track 3, where impressive finger-taps, complex fills and jarring stop-starts illuminate the nearly five-minute "What Are You Dylan in My House?", which even manages to throw in a catchy refrain towards the finish.

Being this EP is close to a year old and about to enter its fourth pressing or so, I imagine we might get something new from the band later this year. If We Delete; Erase is any indication, it's something to look forward to. Keep goin', Sargent House."
