Local Natives’ Gorilla Manor stands as one of my most highly anticipated albums for 2010. They also once stood as one of the great indie rock acts out there left unsigned. Well no more. Frenchkiss Records has snagged them up. Frenchkiss is founded by members of Les Savy Fav and hold on their roster such great indie pop acts as The Dodos, Passion Pit and The Hold Steady. No doubt Local Natives will fit in nicely.
Their debut album Gorilla Manor is due out February 16th and is already out in the UK.
