    Really good stuff, seen them a couple times now, look forward to seeing how they respond to Coachella, as well as Coachella responding to them

    I heard one song on PMA and liked it a lot but expected it to be their only good song but it ended up being my least favorite song on the album. Really good stuff.

    They've really been gaining momentum over the last month. I think this will definitely be one of those sets that people end up going to because of all the buzz and it really surprises people.

    Warning Sign is my favorite track on the album and I used to consider myself a big Talking Heads fan but I guess I was wrong cause I had no clue it was a cover of theirs! Gonna have to check out the original.

    Saw them open for Ed Sharpe a few months back. I remember not knowing who they were but being blown away by them. They remind me of a more accessible Grizzly Bear.

    Not sure I agree with the Grizzly Bear comparison but music sounds different to every listener. How was Ed Sharpe live?

    Definitely, can't go wrong with talking heads! Props to Local natives though for taking an already great song and making it their own.

    Agreed. I would love to see David Byrne at Coach. This same thing happened to me with Ra Ra Riot's Suspended in Gaffa, it's my favorite song by them and I had no idea it was a Kate Bush cover for a good while.

    This is the kind of band that is the epitome of what is wrong with "indie" music to me. Where you have a band that's good, but incredibly boring. There's just nothing exciting about these kind of bands or interesting for that matter.

    To me saying a band is good but boring is saying two different things. Can you clarify a little better?

    Ed Sharpe was very entertaining live. They have a billion people in the group and were forced to jam themselves onto a tiny stage, but it was awesome. Very well rehearsed. The place went nuts for 40 Day Dream.

    I see what your saying, about the boring but talented indie band, that's how I feel about Wilco and Spoon, but I don't find Local Natives boring. Not arguing with you though, because whether or not a band is boring is completely subjective.

    couldn't agree more. this is one of those bands i was initially impressed with and then became disgusted with rather quickly. i had even elevated them to "i should tell my fellow coachella attendees to check them out" status...then i listened to gorilla manor before that all too familiar indie band apathy kicked in. there's this superficial appeal that must be stripped away with a few good listens before you realize that this band is boring, wickedly fucking boring.

    having seen them live, i can assure you that they are far far from boring
    Lick an orange, it tastes like an orange. Lick a pineapple, it tastes like a pineapple. Go ahead, try it. Try some more. The strawberries taste like strawberries. The snozzberries taste like snozzberries! We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams. Come along, come along.

    You lost me at Wilco and Spoon, I couldn't disagree more.

    I've been through Gorilla Manor enough times to know it's a keeper for me. As for their live show, they will impress the skeptics.

    Wilco and Spoon. Wow. Still trying to digest that one.

    I take it, that means you're a fan of Wilco and Spoon? Because I was saying those are bands that I find boring, and that I don't feel that way about Local Natives.

    I got what you meant. I just don't agree with your comments that Spoon and Wilco are boring. At least we agree on Local Natives.

    I used to see them all the time when they were called Cavil at Rest. Here's their EP from 2004 if anyone cares to compare.

    saw these guys a couple of times at SXSW and they were excellent. There is absolutely nothing boring about this band live...not sure if I've ever seen one person drumming, playing keyboard and singing simultaneously.

    vids I took at the NPR party:

    Wide Eyes


    Sun Hands
