Been waiting a long time for this…never has over 2 years felt so long. The new track carries a heavy vibe of The National & Grizzly Bear, while still sounding like an organic Local Natives track. Their sophomore album Hummingbird out January 28th on Infectious and January 29th on Frenchkiss.
So, seems Baeble is taking charge in hosting up some pretty sweet live shows. Be warned though, as the first time I tried to bring up the setlist function on their player and skip songs…flash just completely died. Linked here is the Local Natives show from the Bowery Ballroom in NYC, back in May. Their album is fairly deserved of the showers of praise its received and takes on an additional charm in a live context. The vocal harmonies are not studio trickery and form a lovely enveloping warmth that brings the songs an added dimension.
Also worth checking out, Local Natives just finished a semi-acoustic Daytrotter session which you can find here.
Baeble also has a killer set from Tokyo Police Club at The Studio at Webster Hall. Watching it makes me feel less shitty for missing their most recent tour.
