NO recently did a session on Daytrotter, but for those of you who don't have a Daytrotter membership (you might want to rethink that), you can check out NO in this here video.

As if I couldn't be more obsessed with Hummingbird Local Natives, they recently did a special performance for Spotify Sessions, which gives us a more acoustic-based look at some of the tracks from what I consider to be one of this year's best albums. You can listen to the full list of songs here.
The new Dawes album, Stories Don't End, is full of a more rounded out, robust Dawes, so its nice to see lead singer and songwriter Taylor Goldsmith take a step back from that studio sound and do this super-stripped-down rendition of John Fogerty's "Someday Never Comes" with his brother Griffin doing harmonies and bringing new attention to the lyrics.
