"Straight-ahead indie rock with a very large and welcome dollop of power pop with its ears on economic Sixties garageband pyschedelic rock." Elsewhere — 06/27/2016

The Navins; not yourself today (Green Monkey): Although Seattle's always interesting Green Monkey label releases contemporary artists quite a chunk of its output is reissues or previously unreleased albums from bands and artists out of the Pacific Northwest. This enjoyable but hardly essential album seems a bit of contemporary/unreleased because it seems most of this was recorded in 2014 . . . but looked like it would never see daylight until GM stepped in. Straight-ahead indie rock with a very large and welcome dollop of power pop with its ears on economic Sixties garageband pyschedelic rock.

Not Yourself Today is the latest release from guitar-wielding Seattle quartet, The Navins. Eleven songs living squarely at the crossroads of jangly power pop and psyched-out garage, the album conjures vibes from 60s rock n roll, 70s punk and power pop, and the angular sounds of the 80s and 90s underground college rock scenes.

Not Yourself Today pays homage to the torchbearers ... Velvets. The Replacements. Big Star. Hawkwind. Husker Du. Blue Cheer. The Pretty Things. Waylon Jennings. It’s all inside. Not Yourself Today culminates in just under thirty eight minutes of genre-bending-yet-familiar songs, not-so-neatly packaged up and held together by all the glue The Ramones sniffed.

” these are rock/pop tunes that are very good. . . some sprightly jangle that would make any indie popper proud.”

The NAVINS get more Sweet Press: ” 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

“The Navins are a wonderful independent alternative pop trio who sings honest and passionate songs"

The Navins have pulled down their first review in Jersey Beat! 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.” Hell yeah.

"There is some serious NW-rock pedigree in this line-up"

Do you enjoy some good ole’ garage-y powerpop? Then make sure you get over to the Feedback Lounge in West Seattle on Saturday, June 29th. That’s where you’ll find local band, The Navins, who will be playing a *free* show with Mark Pickerel. There is some serious NW-rock pedigree in this line-up: you’ll hear folks who have been in bands such as TAD, Screaming Trees, Truly, Gnome, and Sweet Secrets. You can hear a few songs by the Navins over on ReverbNation. Definitely for fans of Guided by Voices, the Velvet Underground, the Replacements, etc. Perfect music for a summer BBQ in the backyard with friends.

"a well-done sort of updated tip of the cap to bands like The Velvet Underground and The Replacements."

“This will be the Navins' Yakima CD release show for their latest, a three-song EP titled "Time to Go" that was recorded with former Love Battery leader Ron Nine. It's a well-done sort of updated tip of the cap to bands like The Velvet Underground and The Replacements.” Daniel Craig - ON Magazine

"old school groove that comfortably fits yesterday with today"

“An affectionate garage jam session that's pure organic Seattle rock, THE NAVINS throw down an old school groove that comfortably fits yesterday with today. Not surprising when you consider who the band members are. (Do your homework.) The track also guest features RON NINE of the legendary ROOM NINE on slide guitar.” Jeff Gilbert - Feedback Lounge web Site

The Navins Harken Back to the Golden Age of College Rock
The Navins Harken Back to the Golden Age of College Rock

“Featuring ex-members of Tad, Gnome and Peach, The Navins' three-song EP harkens back to the golden age of college rock, merging the power-pop and jangly guitars of bands like Redd Kross and The Posies with noisier indie rock faves like Built to Spill. Retro and pleasing, especially for those who like their rock & roll with a bit of grit and an equal amount of melody.” Dave Lake - Seattle Weekly
