Local Natives, Suckers 

When: Tue., May 4, 9:30 p.m. 2010
Price: $9 advance; $11 at door

Brooklyn's Suckers certainly brought the boozy sing-along passion with their blog-buzzy song "It Keeps a Body Moving," but the rest of the songs from their debut EP and their upcoming Frenchkiss Records full-length bring to mind everything from a suburban Eno-enabled Roxy Music to a relaxed Modest Mouse as fronted by David Byrne. Coincidentally enough, Local Natives take on a song from Talking Heads' More Songs About Buildings and Food, but it might take a little while for their take on "Warning Sign" to bring back memories of the original. In the hands of this Silver Lake/ LA quintet, the tune's skittish paranoia is subsumed by an alluring combination of soaring harmonies, gently winding guitar lines and polyrhythmic percussion. Those last two things are also hallmarks of the Talking Heads sound, but the fooling around that Local Natives pursue on Gorilla Manor is decidedly more guileless—and no less gorgeous for it. —David Raposa
