Local Natives – “Bowery (No-Face Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

Last January Local Natives dropped one of the first good albums of the year, Hummingbird. It closed with “Bowery,” a song that went all over the place, fitting crashing drums, bright piano melodies, and pummeling drum machines into a couple of climactic minutes. This new remix by producer No-Face jumps around with the same unpredictability but onto different planes, as it falls between chiming atmospheric ambiance and big, punchy dance music. Listen to it below and head to the band’s website for song stems to make your own remix.
