Local Natives‘ promo video for ‘You & I’ chronicles a crisis situation. But not exactly the kind of crisis situation you probably expect. Check out who the unusual patient lying in the hospital bed is by watching the video below.

Here is the promo video for Local Natives‘ ‘Heavyfeet’, a song they premiered at CMJ last October. It appears on their latest album ‘Hummingbird’, released last month, is getting across the board plaudits.

For sure, the California band will be burning the midnight oil at this year’s SXSW. Their two official showcases at SXSW 2013 are both at 1 AM: at the Lustre Pearl as part of the Frenchkiss Records showcase on Wednesday 13 March, and at the Mohawk on Thursday 14 March.

Roskilde Festival: Day 4 Roundup

By on Thursday, 22nd July 2010 at 2:00 pm

Sunday. Day 4 of Roskilde. We’re in the homestretch now. It feels like I’ve been running a marathon for the last 3 days (complete with perspiration) and there is some relief that it will be over. But that is tempered largely by the thought that indeed, the festival will soon be over, which means my return to America. A sad thought.

I decide on a lie-in, a relaxing breakfast (as opposed to the semi-frantic protein bulk-up brekky of the day before), not traipsing over to the festival until mid-afternoon. The first act I see is Korean rhythmic group Dulsori, a swirling dervish of drum and stringed instrument players, both men and women. I feel terrible that they are in their traditional garb; they must be boiling. But the power and effort they use to put on a show seems unaffected by the freakishly hot temperatures. I didn’t think they would go down well with a Danish audience, but their performance concludes with loud cheers at Odeon.

Pavilion is close by to Odeon and quite near to what became my go-to food stall for sheer overall food size. (Slight hilarity that most of the food I ate at Roskilde came from a place called ‘Dixie Burger’ that served Southern-American style hamburgers.) And Pavilion is hosting the highly-touted Californian band Local Natives. Maybe it is because the festival is drawing to a close or I have seen so many great acts already, but I am not impressed by the band from Los Angeles. My ears perk up when I hear the riffs of ‘Flake’, a song by American surfer dude Jack Johnson that came out when I was in uni. I hang out with the tired festival-goers in the shade and watch Johnson from the Orange Stage jumbotrons. He was another act that I thought would get ‘lost in translation’ at Roskilde, but his low-key, ambling guitar pop seems to fit everyone here to a T.

After the cut: this review of day 4 continued with more photos.
