So Local Natives' new album Hummingbird leaked, aaaand... it... is... pretty disappointing. I don't know if it's just me, but I find most of the new album pretty boring and uninspired. I talked to two friends about it today and they both like it, so again, might just be me. Gorilla Manor is one of my favourite albums, so I was bummed out in a pretty major way. Most of the songs sound the same; same pace with a major lack of melody. Mostly just droning harmonies and two chords that go on and on and on and on and don't actually become anything. I know they were going for something darker and more mature, but there's just nothing to hold onto on this album.
It's not all terrible though, there are two songs that I enjoyed. Mt. Washington and Black Balloons the latter of which is not on YouTube.
I know there are Local Natives fans on here, so I was wondering what everyone thought of it... ?
