Reputedly perfected late last night on Brighton beach, whether or not Local Natives’ sumptuous take on Zoo Kid-slash-King Krule’s Out Getting Ribs was indeed provoked by a ravenous kind of hunger experienced down on the South Coast may remain inconclusive. However, that which this afternoon became rather transparent when they aired said cover over at Rough Trade East was that this is far from the sort of radical overhaul flippantly contrived under the cover of darkness after a couple smokes, but instead a strikingly measured reconsideration the like of which the Silver Lake natives only rarely deign to let us in on. Combining piercing Casio organ tones with tousled vocals that tussle with one another like strands of greased hair in an oppressive July climate, it’s a mercifully far cry from the original and, a little redolent of Hummingbird highlight Colombia, really was an unearthly joy to behold of a sweltering lunchbreak spent out and about.
