If I could make that headline a little longer, the rest of it would read “are still completely awesome in every way a band can be.” But, alas, I had to keep it short so that you’d actually read it. Here’s a video of Local Natives (who I love) doing a backyard cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s classic song “Cecelia.” Best part is totally the unexpected xylophone solo and the following toss of the xylophone sticks.
And if you thought that was pretty neat, check out their Myspace for an example of what Local Natives can do when they’re writing the song. Pretty great stuff. There’s also a nice Talking Heads cover there as well.
