Why do I keep thinking Local Natives are from San Francisco instead of Los Angeles? If I were in Chicago or Butte, MN, would I think they were from there based solely on the "Local"? And just what kind of perverse things are going on in the animal kingdom today?

Some questions to consider while you watch this impressionistic and yet weirdly literal video for their lead single, "Wide Eyes."

If you missed them at the Fillmore a couple weeks ago, just imagine this is what it was like.

Also recommended: the Teen Daze remix.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
