Local Natives



I slacked on a Friday post so I'll make it up with a rare Saturday one telling you about a cool band called Local Natives. They're an unsigned LA band that I've been listening to a lot, but I only found out about them when someone else who saw Local Natives live gave me their five track "Daytrotter EP."

The standout song on this EP is the song "Airplanes."  You may have unknowingly heard it before because it was used on the TV show "Chuck" last season.   A BBC Radio One performance of this song is featured below.



The rest of the EP is good as well including my second favorite song on it "World News."  They've completed a full length album "Gorilla Manor," but I'm not really sure if that's readily available yet. Although you can download most of the tracks on the "Daytrotter EP" from here or listen to them on the Local Natives myspace page.
