3.5 greatJustTaylor | January 28th 13

it is subtle with lots of room for lateral growth but it might be a bit too subtle to make you want to come back.

From start to finish this album is amazing, they are also brilliant live, so glad to be able to hear them.

3.5 greatiGuter | January 26th 13

This album is nothing if not subtle; a lateral growth that's thoughtful and a subtle progression that's bold and a bit brighter.

4.3 superbDavey Boy STAFF | March 28th 13

Following their superb critically acclaimed debut, LA indie-rockers Local Natives do not disappoint on 2nd LP 'Hummingbird'. Produced by The National's Aaron Dessner, this album is less vivacious & immediate than its predecessor, instead choosing to be introspective & emotional. While the dynamic instrumentation returns, it's performed in a deft & subtle manner that compels & rewards further listening. Furthermore, the dual vocal harmonies of Kelcey Ayer & Taylor Rice take a step up here, providing a handful of spine-chilling moments that are worth the price of admission alone. Recommended Tracks: Breakers, Black Balloons, Wooly Mammoth, You & I & Heavy Feet.

2.5 averageMark H. | February 9th 13

It's 2013. Do we really need more bland indie pop?

It wears its influences on its sleeve, but I don't think that's a bad thing.
