Native America

Based in New Orleans, Native America began as an experimental recording project for 22-year-old songwriter Ross Farbe, who channeled his love for tiny keyboards, homemade noisemakers, and bedroom recordings into addictive tunes with an ethereal dream-pop influence. An infatuation with physical space and natural reverb lead Farbe to break into warehouses, campus parking garages, and abandoned spaces around New Orleans, risking his spotless criminal record to lay down a few tracks. Released in 2010, Dancing About Architecture (from Park the Van Records) is the product of his creative endeavors, with songs like “Universe City” and “Rubberjuice Man” displaying a reverberated, textured sound with an experimental edge. This collection of patchwork songs paved the way for the band’s growth from one to three, with the addition of the very talented John St. Cyr on bass and Ray Micarelli on drums.
