Tulsa-based Native Lights have just tweeted that they are preparing for a full-length album. Obviously, I’m jumping the gun here a little bit, as that’s a bit of an ambiguous statement — Are they starting to write songs? Going into the studio? — but even so, I’m going to go ahead and get excited for this.
I’ve been a fan of the band — which includes members of longtime Opus favorites Ester Drang and Unwed Sailor — ever since I found out about them last year, and the three songs on their MySpace page have been in pretty constant rotation lately (especially “El Rosa,” which was one of my favorite songs of 2009).
