Published Nov 05, 2013California indie rock outfit Local Natives have turned lots of heads in 2013 thanks to their acclaimed album, Hummingbird, and now they've become the latest act to release their very own iTunes Session. It came out today (November 5) through Frenchkiss Records.
While some iTunes Session releases are fairly short, this one is long enough to be considered a full-length since it includes 11 tracks. Almost half of these are listed as acoustic takes, while "Wooly Mammoth" appears in a so-called "Porto Keys Version." Most of the tunes are Local Natives originals, but there's also a cover of King Krule's "Out Getting Ribs."
In addition to the 11 audio cuts, this take of "Ceilings" also appears in video form.
Over the past few days, the band have shared a few preview clips from the recording of their iTunes Session, which took place at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles. Scroll past the tracklist to watch.
