Portugal. The Man and Local Natives were two of the latest bands highlighted on an episode of the long-running Austin City Limits, and each band’s set featured several songs off their recently-released albums.
For Portugal. The Man, it was a great showcase of Evil Friends, which has a darkness about it amid the catchy pop anthems. Meanwhile, Local Natives’ Hummingbird is an excellent representation of the Los Angeles-based group’s locked-in harmonies and careful arrangements.
In all, this edition of Austin City Limits is not to be missed.
