Listen to Where the Land Meets the Water

Natives are a psychadelic punk group based out of Louisville, KY. Made up of former members of prominent Louisville bands Enkindel/The Enkindels, Invaders and Ten to Midnight, Natives just released their debut EP, Loose Secrets, via Rad Tantrum Records. The 5 song EP was recorded and mixed in two days in May 2011 by Mike Bridavsky at Bloomington’s Russian Recording. The album was recorded live, with minimal overdubs and no more than 3 takes for any song. Loose Secrets is available on 12″ 45 RPM vinyl and digitally at

“Natives, as perhaps the namesake suggests, is a primordial force… crunchy, churning guitars, double tribal drumming, and a garage rock snarl with arena rock swagger.” -
