Local Natives: “Out Among the Stars” Johnny Cash Cover Video

with No Comments

When this video of Johnny Cash covers by La Blogothèque came out on YouTube a few months ago, I took it as a belated birthday present of new music from Local Natives. Granted, the two other covers by Brandon Flowers/Dawes and Father John Misty were great in their own right but Local Natives’ stylistic twist on “Out Among the Stars” was in its own league entirely. They also started playing this cover in concerts and so nothing has made me more jealous of the citizens of St. Louis, MO. You can hear the Local Natives portion of the above video at 10:20.

Local Natives is Kelcey Ayer, Taylor Rice, Ryan Hahn, Matt Frazier, Nick Ewing.
