Not Yourself Today

by The Navins

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    ” these are rock/pop tunes that are very good. . . you could call it power pop and slink away before anyone can call you on it, but there’s more here (though terrific opening cut, “Judy You’re Not Yourself Today” is straight up power pop). “Piano Fire” almost has this tense kinda jangle like an old Flying Nun band (The Clean?) while “Oceans” has this killer guitar workout, it reminded me a little bit of Dinosaur Jr, and “Better Luck” has some sprightly jangle that would make any indie popper proud.” Dagger zine

    Sez Leslie Snyder: “The Navins are a wonderful independent alternative pop trio who sings honest and passionate songs about human emotions and how human beings choose to cope with various situations in life. The trio’s latest CD “Not Yourself Today” is like a storybook for an alternative pop music fanatic’s ears.”

The Navins are 100% guitar rock dudes. From Seattle. They favor vintage amps and vintage guitars. You might say they are somewhat vintage themselves. They have a teensy bit of organ, but sometimes that’s just what guitar-band dudes do.

Tain’t nuthin weird or freaky here - just one tight band with great songs living at the crossroads of indie, alternative, garage, jangle, twang and power pop, where absurd pop notions tinged with chemical longing meet the psychedelic, late-night creakings of the devil present in our every nature. Whew.

Not Yourself Today is their debut recording. We were going to put it out a year ago, but then “things” happened. The Navins, they don’t worry. They just do what they do – they write songs, they record songs, and play some noisy shows. It’s pure Pacific Northwest rock, straight from the garage to your ears.
