I don’t have a lot to add to the discussion about Local Natives‘ fantastic new record, Hummingbird. Like everyone else has said, it’s a gorgeous, dark, rumbling beast of a record, one that shows their growth as songwriters while still containing the soaring vocals, pronounced percussion and angular guitar lines that made them so appealing to begin with.
‘Three Months’ and ‘Mt. Washington’ are my favorite tracks on the album, though you can’t go wrong with any of the eleven songs. What I’m trying to say is this: go buy Hummingbird, kids. Enjoy.
