Featured Album: Hummingbird by Local Natives

Written by Rory Burbeck | March 1, 2013

Passion, emotion, and soul are three words that come to mind after listening to one minute of the Local Natives’s recently released album Hummingbird. The production is fantastic and it enables the instruments to collectively create a unified sound that is just clean, crisp, and clear – like going to the lake on a warm spring day in Austin. In an age where streaming and downloading single songs is becoming the norm, Hummingbird reminds us that the album still has a place in this industry. Subtle changes in texture and song structure throughout are more than enough to keep you engaged. This is great musical storytelling.
