Language Advisory: This is a live concert recording, and may not contain language suitable for all audiences.

One of the breakout bands of 2010, the L.A.-based quintet Local Natives plays briskly infectious, harmony-rich folk-pop music that benefits greatly from its propulsive, Afrobeat-inspired rhythms. But Local Natives' songs aren't just pretty empty vessels: Its young members have a knack for lyrics that exude genuine thoughtfulness.

Recorded live at The Gorge on Saturday, May 28, the band performs songs from 2010's Gorilla Manor as part of the 2011 Sasquatch Music Festival outside Seattle, Wash.
