if you like music such as Annuals, Fleet Foxes, Grizzly Bear, Anathallo (among others) you should certainly check these guys out. Gorilla Manor doesn't have a bad song on it. Every track has either a great melody, vocal harmonies, energy, or something else about it to enjoy. Even though many of the songs I had heard previously, hearing them within this collection of songs, they seem to be given new life.

World News = great vocal harmony
Sun Hands = new arrangement totally works
Cards and Quarters = Dreamy mood
Wide Eyes = perfect opening track
Who Knows Who Cares = the buildup in this song rules
Warning Sign = they made this their own song in a lot of ways. The bass-line I cannot get out of my head. So funky.

There's already a pretty big buzz about this band, but 2010 very likely will when their name starts to spread.

I'm seeing them again on Sunday November 29th in Minneapolis (at the Varsity Theater too, my favorite venue in town!). I already PRE-ORDERED Gorilla Manor, so hopefully I'll be able to have the band sign my copy then.

This could easily be my favorite debut album of 2009. The material is just so strong, and very much of the level I hoped/expected. I wouldn't be surprised if like their great EP "Orion Way" when they were called "Cavil at Rest" I'm listening to Gorilla Manor still in the years to come.

Man is it sweet to see a great band start to go places you know they could.

I just finished listening to the new album, Hummingbird, and it is fantastic.
It is different from Gorilla Manor, and i think they have improved their songwriting.
If you haven't heard it yet, here's the first single, Breakers:


Hey, it would be great if a mod/admin could change the thread title to just "Local Natives".

HUGE, huge fan of Gorilla Manor. Got it on vinyl. Love it.
Haven't listened to any of their new album yet, I'm sure it'll blow me away.
