Local Natives new album Hummingbird is out there. And it’s with an inch of pleasure I say they’ve surprised me. Positively I mean.
Looks like they found their own place in all this Indie-rock, electronic, whatever-you-want-to-call-it space. Hummingbird is no longer the reflex of some wannabe Grizzly Bear-The National-Fleet Foxes. Now, it’s just Local Natives.
Breakers opened up the appetite, and while going through the whole set of tracks in Hummingbird, our mind travels into a very good place, a place where Local Native’s music starts making a lot of sense. The year has just begun but this might be a strong candidate to feature in WSG top albums of 2013.
Having said that, Bowery is just a living proof of their maturity. Loving every second of it.
