Исполнитель: Local Natives. 2009 indie. Album 2010 12 Songs. Gorilla Manor is the nickname given to the SoCal dwelling where most of the members of Local Natives once lived, and one imagines the name is apt and the good times were many. The California bands debut pays homage to those good old days and the music it inspired, with sunny, Afrobeat-tinged pop songs that flitter and swirl and bubble. Gorilla Manor, the debut album from L. s Local Natives, features rustic and yearning vocals, three-part harmonies, clattering percussion, wiggly guitar leads, euphoric chanting, and a Talking Heads cover. In short, the Silver Lake quintet have followed indie rock's major players in recent years- they knew how to dress for success in 2010. Great for them- now, what's in it for you Plenty as it turns out. Local Natives have already gained a foothold in parts of Europe- their album has received attention in the UK and they graced the cover of Scandinavia's Sonic magazine.

It was released on November 2, 2009, on Infectious Records UK, and on February 16, 2010, by Frenchkiss Records US. The album is characterized by soaring, sky-scraping harmonies, dreamy orchestral melodies, and throbbing tribal beats. Although recorded in late 2008, Gorilla Manor wasnt released until 14 months later, allowing Local Natives the chance to build a strong blog buzz before their debut hit American shores. The delay wasnt entirely beneficial, however, as Gorilla Manor sounds quite similar to a number of albums that flourished in the interim. Band Name Local Natives. Album Name Gorilla Manor.

If you're a sucker for bands like the Shins, Fleet Foxes, and the Dodos, you'll instantly be drawn to the debut by this L. There are a lot of familiar sounds here: The gentle harmonies draw from Pacific Northwest influences the rumbling builds take on Brit-rock dramatics the jaunty beats and an NPR namecheck nod to the sweater-vest stylings of Vampire Weekend. Fit with a Talking Heads cover, it's quite a combo. When songs from Local Natives debut album Gorilla Manor began to appear on the internet, there was a danger that the band was simply going to come late to the party all the indie kids would be passed out from their rye and Fleet Foxes commonly known as a Sun Giant or their gin and Veckatimests. Shades of Pecknolds delicate yet forceful vocals and Grizzly Bears arrangement and composition style, are very clear markers of influence for the band. Theres a thin line in between influence, reference and rip-off
