Track 6. Sun Hands by Local Natives
When the Headphones Optional crew took in a early 2010 show of the Local Natives at Rickshaw in SF, their bassist was selling “merch” before the start of the show. After a summer tour as well as prime slots at Coachella, ACL, etc, they are definitely ready for groupies to handle those tedious retail duties. Local Natives might also rival Vampire Weekend in terms of business savvy as they played TBWA/Chiat’s parking lot Art/Music so come Xmas time this track might just be enticing you to drink Pepsi Max. Here’s a little bonus clip of the band performing Paul Simon’s Cecilia in some Silverlake backyard. On another note, is there anyone but bands who take picture like the below? Isn’t it time we mixed the band photo shoot formula up?
