After wowing crowds at CMJ 2012, releasing Hummingbird to wide acclaim and conquering Valentine’s Day, Local Natives now have one goal: world domination. Or at least a world tour, which will presumably lead to the early stages of world domination.
 
To celebrate their impending string of dates, the group has released a percussion-filled remix of Hummingbird stand-out “Wooly Mammoth.” The remix is going by the title “Wooly Robot” and it’s a creepy, hulking take on the track, all slow-build up and big release. Good stomping music. Check it out below, along with the group’s tour dates, which include quite a few festival stops, a show with brood-rock titans the National and multiple dates with Wild Nothing.
