How anyone can think "Mykonos" is their worst song is beyond me.

I was going to say the same thing. I know this alternate version isn't as good as the original, but it's not that bad.

According to him, it's the alternate version. Then again, he IS in Europe, so maybe the only version he knew was the version we previously thought was crappy, and he hates the guitar version. Who knowz, life is so complicated.

I'm confuzzled as the only Mykonos I've heard anywhere has been the guitar one. I thought White Winter Hymnal did relatively well here as well as I've heard it in a dozen clothes stores...Topman and the like.

Just listened to alternate Mykonos, Isles, and now I'm listening to the self-titled EP for the first time. The self-titled EP is very different.

MySpace.com Blogs - Labels - Fll l l l l ee e e e t F ff f f f o xx eeee ss MySpace Blog


"So, I went to the (truly insane and heart-swelling) Dept of Eagles show at Neumo's tonight (sang along and bought a Tee) and a couple people said something about hearing we signed to Virgin Records and they are reissuing a 'special edition' of the CD LP. This is false. I think a Seattle Weekly blog post started this fire, which I will now extinguish, with this statement - 'Fleet Foxes will never, ever, under no circumstances, from now until the world chokes on gas fumes, sign to a major label. This includes all subsidiaries or permutations thereunder. Till we die.'

"I just don't see the point. Most major labels seem anti-music. We've pursued no such deal with Virgin (or been pursued to my knowledge, I think it was just a bit of news they reported) and would be idiots to be unhappy with our fam of label folks.
It is true though that all copies of the CD LP will now include a free copy of the EP (like it is currently with the vinyl), but that's not a 'special limited edition,' it'll be that way in perpetuity, no extra cost or packaging change.

"That's all! Also I cut all my hair off."



Somehow, I now like Fleet Foxes even more than I already did.

That is one of the most singularly cool statements i've heard from a band in an age...major props.

That said if they ever go back on their word there will be some very hacked off people

I'm more shocked by the fact that he cut his hair...

Well... now the narrative law practically demands that they sign with a major some time later,

It will be interesting to see what they do next. Whenever a band comes along that sounds so fully formed on its debut and makes such a unique, accomplished album, a cynical side of me can't help wondering just how much gas is left in the tank.

The version on the EP is my favourite song on the EP

The single version or alternative version or whatever it is sounds just plain and boring; plus they removed some of the parts I like best from the song.

For some reason I keep thinking they're coming out with a new album this year sometime. But I have no idea.

Fleet Foxes: Mykonos | Pitchfork.tv

Here's the new music video for Mykonos. Pretty cool.

I don't know what's going on there, but I rather like it. Doesn't distract much from the song, which I appreciated.

I like Robin's solo tunes as White Antelope.

Holla!
