Violet Street by Local Natives

\24.6.19\ I don’t have much introduction to the band for you, as I have covered this on my last review of the group’s 2016 album, Sunlit Youth. Local natives is a band from Los Angeles, CA and they sound like it. Their influence comes from classic beach and rock groups and the love and loss … Continue reading Violet Street by Local Natives

\4.6.18\ A band you most likely haven’t heard of but have most likely heard from. The New York University Alumni-based group formed in the early 2000’s as Fred Nicolaus and Daniel Rossen (of Grizzly Bear fame) became dormmates. Somewhat stumbling into the arms of California-based Isota Records, DoA recorded a few more tracks with Hot … Continue reading No One Does It Like You Do/Too Little Too Late by Department of Eagles
