Local Natives In ConcertKCRW

With their debut album, Gorilla Manor, Local Natives' members skillfully combined triumphant harmonies with bone-shaking percussion in irresistible fashion. Now on their second release, Hummingbird (out Jan. 29), which was produced with the help of The National's Aaron Dessner in Brooklyn, they've returned with a pared-back approach, placing more emphasis on those sweeping dramatic moments.

Last month, the L.A. band showcased several songs from Hummingbird during a live set at Apogee's Berkeley Street Studio in Santa Monica. Until now, only the lucky KCRW listeners in attendance had a chance to see the show, but you can watch the 11-song concert in its entirety right here. The audio recording of this performance was premiered on KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic.
