A Double Dose of Local Natives at Terminal 5 Begins Tonight

September 24th, 2013

Local Natives burst onto the scene in 2010 thanks to their debut LP, Gorilla Manor, filled with plenty of harmonies and dreamy melodies. After heading out across the world in support of the album, the L.A. quartet—Kelcey Ayer (vocals and keys), Taylor Rice (bass and vocals), Ryan Hahn (guitar and vocals) and Matt Frazier (drums)—returned with their sophomore effort, Hummingbird (stream it below), produced by the National’s Aaron Dessner, early this year. Pitchfork called it a “thoughtful, lovely album with small gestures that provide great rewards.” Those rewards become even greater when the songs are played live, and Local Natives (above, doing “Columbia” at Music Hall of Williamsburg), along with Wild Nothing, play Terminal 5 tonight and tomorrow.
