Wow, I never noticed that but I'm inclined to agree. Robin also posts on atease from time to time. Got a guy there on the list for one of their shows over the summer. He seems like a pretty down to earth guy, which just makes me like the band even more.


And it looks like we're about to witness a Scumbogasm.

So I still haven't watched this off of my DVR yet, but I just saw this and nearly fell out of my chair.

YouTube - Jorm Dances To Fleet Foxes

Fantastique.

I just spent a while looking around the net, and can't find a thing on there being a new version. Are you sure it wasn't just a remix or mashup?

No, there's an alternate version of it available on some special edition of the album. Along with a song called "Isles" which I have yet to listen to.

The alternate "Mykynos" sucks.

Found it on a blog, it's labeled as an "album club exclusive EP" in my iTunes, but I can't find anything on the EP. eMusic apparently does "Album Club Exlusives", but they have no Fleet Foxes when I just looked. I dont-a-know. Anywayz, it's pretty obviously a demo-ed version they scrapped.

I just noticed I have a Daytrotter Session from Fleet Foxes on my computer after listening to the Alternate Version. Sweet.

So not terribly worth hearing I guess then? Ah well.

To be honest, it's not THAT drastically different other than substituting guitars for piano. It's pretty much exactly what you expect for a demo.

The first three songs are the same, but then it has an alternate version of Mykonos that was cool to hear (although the original is better), and a completely different song called Isles which I really liked. Too bad it wasn't on the original EP.
Let's see, I first posted this back in October on Page 8 of this thread. I'm glad you were all paying attention.

Well the new version is becoming their first hit single in the UK, and is getting massive radio play

Can we call them sell outs now?

It's not a "new" version.
