Quick Take: Hummingbird by Local Natives

Local psych rockers release their second album

Despite all our sunshine, there’s a bite to L.A.’s winter air. Hummingbird, the second album from psych rockers Local Natives taps into the city’s peculiar class of cold. After touring with Arcade Fire, the Silver Lake quartet has mined the “sweeping chorale” sound. But behind the organs, chiming guitars, and emotive howls is a melancholy sweetness that’s in tune with the seasonal chill. Out tomorrow. (Frenchkiss Records/Infectious Music, $12)
