Local Natives with "Morning Becomes Eclectic" host Jason Bentley
"This and Coachella are what we've been looking forward to," observed Local Natives' Taylor Rice during their soundcheck at KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic.

Catch Local Natives this Sunday at Coachella on the Gobi Stage at 2:10 PM.
Soundcheck is an ongoing photo series that has featured local rising stars Silversun Pickups, The Airborne Toxic Event, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Warpaint, Avi Buffalo, and many more.
