What's hot? These guys...Local Natives- a band from LA... and they are knocking my socks off. You know when you can't listen to anything else, but even when you're listening to nothing the songs are still playing in your head? Yeah, I guess they are stuck in my head for good. Love this video that was done in France. They are bigger overseas than in the US..for now.
Blake and I drove down to Tucson on Tuesday and saw them at this cute little venue- Solar Culture and were just blown away. I may have a little crush. Just a little.
Here's a video I did of the first track "Wide Eyes" on their album Gorilla Manor from the show in Tucson. They put out a great energy and exude the sweetest sense of harmony.
You know when you love a band SO much (Awake & Alert, for instance) and you ONLY want the best for them... success and fulfillment, and you know how awesome it would be for them to get big. But at the same time you hope they never get big- because it changes people.
Well, this is how I feel about them. They seem like really good people.
