Local Natives- Hummingbird

Artist: Local Natives
Album: Hummingbird
Record Label: Infectious Music

It's nice background music, at least

Local Natives' second album "Hummingbird" would make almost perfect listening for a sunday afternoon overlooking one of their native L.A.'s golden beaches. It's not entirely beige, but only very rarely does it actually have the impact that it aims for, as on the subtly gorgeous Radiohead- esque "Mt. Washington" or the robust quiver of "Woolly Mammoth." The distinctly average sonic pastures don't evoke any real emotional substance to tap into either, but it's nice background music at least.

Key Track: "Woolly Mammoth"

For fans of: Grizzly Bear, Radiohead
