Local Natives is a band from L.A. and their music has some of the best harmonies that you will ever hear.  Their songs deal with the challenges of life but do it in such an optimistic way that you can’t help but feel a little better about things after you listen.  There is a strong pulse running through the songs and though some times the band goes off on ethereal topics, it almost always seems to serve a purpose.  So in my view you need to check these guys out. Here is the song “Shape Shifter” off their debut album Gorilla Manor.
