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. Two weeks ago, the local indie rising stars were the in-studio guests on the Jason Bentley-hosted program, serving up a concoction that had much of the press buzzing at South By Southwest.

"Gorilla Manor rightfully earned its hype for an omnivorous appetite for woozy folk, pan-global pop and scuzzy guitar rock," said August Brown from The LA Times. "But onstage is where the quintet seals the deal -- their three singers really do hit those ethereal harmonies live, and the effect is a pretty close to transcendent. Our Magic 8 Ball says this weekend is where the rest of the country finds this out."
