Monday Monday...La la...La la la la(is it even las?)
My weekend was good...not great, not bad but good. No complaints. In spite of nothing too crazy going on I figured Id give you a little inside scoop de poop on whats going on in the world of Local Natives.
NEw myspace up! So I have been working for awhile now on new artwork and general aesthetic for us and the first phase is now up and runinng. Matt described the style as "Crazy Creep Pop Art". I guess I can see that. The idea was to do something original while still keeping it "Local Natives" style. When you see artwork from us I wanted the listener/viewer to 1. Get at least a little idea of what our music would be like and 2. to entice thier eyes enough to make them want to look into us more.
The color sheme is borderline psychadelic. Lots of colors put together and washed out. Pastel reds and blues with grayscale backgrounds. Cut and pastey style artwork to keep it sloopy(which I love) with random objects and landscapes cut together to make just enough sense.
Matt designed the new tour poster which also plays into the new aesthetic. So well in fact that we used the Ostriches as our background. Tell me what you think?
In other news/gossip we are almost finished with a Talking Heads cover of 'Warning Sign'. Oooooooooooweiiiiiii it sounds good. We definetely made it our own and I can't wait to get it up. Due date most likely next week.
We are also working on a Christmas Song to be released in early Dec. This aint no "Jingle Bells" bullshit. This is the real deal. Its truly a beautiful song with lots of layers and something that will park your ass in front of a fire with a cup of rumnog and a smile.
