I saw them briefly at Lollapalooza a few years ago, but the sound of the pouring rain and the sight of the copious umbrellas prevented me from really experiencing the show.

Kind of forgot about this, as I'm too busy watching Derrick Rose and thinking about how many times Thom is going to invoke underworld imagery on King of Limbs, but I listened to "Helplessness Blues" again last night.

It's really great, and an extremely positive sign for the album. In my view.

Not sure if this was posted somewhere else but as per Pitchfork:

Quote:
Just now on the Fleet Foxes Twitter, frontman Robin Pecknold posted a link to three solo songs that he recorded recently in Los Angeles, with this explanation: "One is a duet with my friend Ed Droste from the amazing band Grizzly Bear, one is just a new solo jam, and one is a cover." The cover is of "Where Is My Wild Rose", a song from the New Zealand folk singer Chris Thompson. The Droste team-up is called "I'm Losing Myself" and features some haunted, feathery harmonies. And the new solo song is called "Derwentwater Stones". They're all quietly stripped-back acoustic folk songs. If you like Fleet Foxes, Christmas came about 10 months early.

If those tracks are considered leftovers, this album is going to be nothing short of stunning.

Did you guys ever hear his cover of Joanna Newsom's On a Good Day from last year? It's really good.

Ha! Me too. (although I am 1/4 German) It took me awhile to figure out what you were referring to.
Also, offtopic/ did you know there are still GA available for the SLC U2 show? makes me wonder if its gonna be kind of a weak crowd with the date getting rescheduled and all. I know a couple of my buddies have since moved out of state during the last year and now won't be going. In fact I'm only using 2 of my 4 GA's as of right now, might just sell the other two.

I wonder if they were just released? Releasing more as the date gets closer, or people having returned them?

Yeah, everyone was saying it would sell out last year, but I also know a bunch of people who just got rid of their tickets when U2 canceled last year. Not sure if it's that they didn't know that they'd be coming back a year later, were mad it was canceled, didn't care enough to wait for a year, or a mixture of all of them. I have to admit, it's the least excited I've ever been for a U2 show. Seeing them tour to support....nothing...doesn't exactly thrill me.

I wonder if they'll sell the album a day early at their show that I'll be at on May 2nd?

...so I'm not required to love it, just like it?

I like it.
