It's been a very long time coming, but the new Local Natives album, 'Hummingbird', is almost with us. The Los Angeles band's brilliant debut LP, 'Gorilla Manor', appeared in the UK way back in November 2009, a full four months before it's American release.
I saw Local Natives live in early 2010 when their Californian harmonies, rhythmic
attack, bristling moustaches and all-round
good-eggedness, effortlessly won over an
initially sceptical, sparsely populated
audience. Since then they have toured
relentlessly, lost their original bassist and
finally readied album number two.
