Released:
Label: Frenchkiss Records
Local Natives' sounds may be gentle, but with every timid intro there's a slow, swelling crescendo to follow. It's a listening experience akin to a relaxing massage -- the aim being to gradually release tension with an end result of complete satisfaction. In that sense, Hummingbird may be less playful than debut Gorilla Manor, but the focus is on its multifaceted subtleties: the skittering beats on "You and I," the dreamy melancholia of the Fleet Foxes and the Antlers on "Ceilings" and "Bowery," the jittery piano on "Black Spot," the jangle of "Breakers," the ghostly twang of "Mt. Washington."
