TRACK REVIEW: Local Natives – Heavy Feet

Written for DIY

The sweetest song about orthopedic shoes you’re likely to hear this week. How about that for getting your attention? I guess we could’ve highlighted the fact that this latest taste of the group’s second album, produced by the National’s Aaron Dessner, has more than a hint of the desk man’s day job in the rhythm section – and if you’re going to imitate someone, imitate Bryan Devendorf – whilst staying with the more melancholic, melodic Fleet Foxes-with-a-pulse sound of their excellent first record, ‘Gorilla Manor’ than plumbing the baritone depths of Matt Berninger. If you weren’t already goosebump-excited for ‘Hummingbird’, out later this month, you will be now.
