Before I begin this post, I want to send my love and condolences to everyone affected by the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting – truly devastating and incomprehensible. My love to you all.
Although Local Natives came together in 2008, they’ve recently become one of my favorites (thanks, Dad!). Their instrumentals are creative and captivating, yet they don’t overpower the vocals. Perfect equilibrium. Hailing from Los Angeles, these guys exude coolness – I certainly want to hang out with them…just check out their tumblr. Their new album, Hummingbird, comes out 1.29.13. CHACHINGGG!
Local Natives – Breakers (single from their new CD)
Local Natives – Airplanes (my favorite)
Jake Bugg… he’s only 18?! Not only does this British gem of a bloke sound mature, but his lyrics are genius. A young Dylan?
Jake Bugg – Trouble Town
Jake Bugg – Two Fingers
