Best Covers: Local Natives “Ultralight Beam”

Local Natives recognize Kanye West’s The Life Of Pablo standout “Ultralight Beam” as one of the brightest beacons of light of last year. During a session with Spotify in July they covered the powerful gospel/rap hybrid, which they’ve released the recording along with a live version of “Fountain Of Youth” from Sunlit Youth.

The LA indie outfit strip the minimal skeleton of the original down even further by removing the booming drums, replace ‘Ye’s wobbling synths with shimmering guitar, and add bare harmonies.
