i want you back
I've had this on my computer for a while and have just gave it a proper listen.
Local Natives' Gorilla Manor plays like Copeland attempting to reach the Stereogum crowd.
The percussion is full of the floor tom strikes like so much indie rock since "Purple Bottle" dropped, but the band's drums are less immediate.
The band grabs from a number of modern influences (All Hour Cymbals,a beefier Fleet Foxes) but explores them further in crafting a stand out record all its own.
