NOTES: Tracks 14-20 = assorted live tracks (audience recordings); LOTS O' THANKS to the following for recording and sharing: cotafloata, Alex Howard, Indyscanvideos

ROB SEZ: Max Indian was a short-lived band from Carrboro, N.C. I wouldn't have had a clue, except for Peter Holsapple ranting & raving about them. I checked out their debut album, and it's simply stunning. Taper cotafloata says, “Thanks to Max Indian for being one of the greatest bands of all time. Please show your support for them by buying the album at or by checking out their related bands: The Dead Tongues, The Human Eyes, Mandolin Orange, and more.” To which I say: What he said. 
(Go have a look at cotafloata’s [Eric Chen’s] Soundcloud collection)

MP3@320 (assorted live tracks @256 kbps)

The debut album: a must!
Just how good is Max Indian's debut album?
Go to CDBaby & check a sample or two.
I predict you'll buy it immediately.

  1. Rare Max Indian material is really hard to come by, and you can’t beat the price — so here’s some more:

    Max Indian - Live at the Pour House, Raleigh, N.C. (WKNC 88.1's Double Barrel Benefit #7), Feb. 5, 2010 (4 trax, audience rec., sound quality VG-)

    plus: an amazing undated live take on “Lookout” and Carter Gaj’s solo studio version of “Whatever Goes Up”.


    MP3@256 (for the most part):
