End of the Show Pre-order the album here: https://www.turntablekitchen.com/sounds-delicious/ Here’s what Nik said about the project: "With zero hyperbole, driving across LA can take half an hour or four days. One of the more manageable times I drove across the city, it took me 37:15, the length of “Pacific Ocean Blue” by Dennis Wilson. Like many important first album listening experiences, the entire environment surrounding that listen burnt into my memory. It was like that sad, dark album was made specifically for that specific sad, dark drive across LA. A haunted, outcast Beach Boy who still sung simple Beach Boy lyrics like “I’m sorry, I miss you” but whose weathered voice is painfully more honest without the hollow late 70’s shine from his band (who seemingly didn’t miss him that much). I really love when artists give their own radical take on a song (‘Jukebox’ by Cat Power is criminally underrated IMO). Luckily this album isn’t as “sacred” as if I covered Pet Sounds in it’s entirety, which allowed me a lot more liberty. I wanted to re-imagine this album in a much darker and ambient context: to flow like a lost mixtape and to sound cohesive with all the voices (and trumpet, hi Nico!) weaving in and out throughout (and obviously I couldn’t NOT have Kelcey, Taylor, Ryan and Matt contribute on a Beach Boy cover album)."

Sorry, didn't mean to cruelly tease BUT there are about 25 more videos of recording LP4 on our Insta story highlights. We're confident the internet will piece these all together into a leaked song from the album. Instagram.com/localnatives http://instagram.com/localnatives
