Check out some great blues-rock from StillNative

Just another guitar-drums, blues-influenced duo? I don't think so.

StillNative are a hard-driving blues duo from Ottawa. An initial listen will certainly prompt comparisons to The Black Keys for their configuration and blues-based rock. However, to me, there's quite a unique groove going on here. I listen to a lot of new music and I think these guys have something very cool going on. There's something about their honest delivery and passion that shines through. I think they'll be able to carve out a nice niche for themselves.

Check out the live version of "Shake Your Boots" below - great song, great playing, effective use of dynamics. Watch out for the full length DVD coming soon.

Their début album is available on their Bandcamp.
