Song of the Day – Thursday 4/29/2010 Local Natives April 29, 2010

What would you get if a Fleet Fox and a Grizzly Bear mated?  No, not a Jackalope or a Liger (“bred for its skills in magic”) or even a Tiglon (look it up).  You’d get Local Natives, the LA quintet that combines Fleet Foxes’ folksy three-part harmonies with Grizzly Bear’s psych folk.

Local Natives debut album, Gorilla Manor dropped on 2/16/2010 and the band will be playing two back-to-back gigs in San Francisco.  On 6/2/2010 the band will play at the Rickshaw Stop, and on 6/3/2010 they’ll play at Bottom of the Hill.
