Love it.

Very fall/winter sound, for sure. It's growing on me like mad.

Audiophile and I are seeing them Thursday.

Also, Mykonos is Fleet Foxes best song.

I'm glad you actually get to see them this time. You're going to have a blast.

I can't pick between "Mykonos" or "Drops in the River." Lord knows I love belting out the "you gooooo wherever you go today" parts though.

At least we can agree the EP shits all over the album.

Fingers are crossed.


I like English House a lot too. That 3 song stretch is pretty dang solid.

Yep, those two are definitely the stand outs on the EP for me too.

Holy crapoli people, the show last night was fan-friggin-tastic! I've seen some live clips of them online, and I'd always worried that they might have a little bit of a hard time with the harmonies live, but that couldn't have been farther from the truth last night. They were spot on vocally and instrumentally all night, it was absolutely beautiful. It almost blew me away how good they sounded, they annihilated my expectations. They played pretty much everything from the album and EP (there may have been one or two songs not played), and 3 or 4 new songs (one or two may have been unidentifiable covers). All of my favorite songs sounded even better live, and a few of the tracks I used to not pay close attention to were stuck in my head after the show. Audiophile and I drug the same guy we brought with us to Sigur Ros to the show (similarly, he'd never heard a Fleet Foxes song prior to the show), and afterwords he told us it was probably the best concert he's ever been to and he's planning to go buy their CDs this weekend. I really was that good.

Highlights for me were: Your Protector, He Doesn't Know Why, White Winter Hymnal, Drops in the River, English House, Mykonos, Ragged Wood, Oliver James, and Blue Ridge Mountains.

^ Awesome.

For a while I thought I was wrong for liking the EP more than the album.

So what you're saying is that you were really bummed Wilco wasn't there?

Not at all. I'm another one who prefers the EP, if I had to choose between the two.

Speaking of the EP, I was checking out that bonus disc from the special edition released in Europe, I believe. 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.

Coincidentally, I listened to them last night--all the way through. I love the record every time I play it but for some reason haven't played it all that much. I still don't have the EP yet but I have a couple of songs from it that I like a lot. Mykonos is awesome.

That was supposed to be "It was that good", in reference to the concert. Bi-ai-atch.





This has been out for a few weeks, but I don't believe anyone has posted it here yet. Here's the "new" vid for He Doesn't Know Why (which is probably my 3rd fav Fleet Foxes song, after Mykonos and White Winter Hymnal). If Chizip was still here, the last half of this video would have been like porn to him.

Wow, there's something really Biblical about that video. I love that song - I think it may be my favorite at this point mainly because I've overplayed White Winter Hymnal.

Fleet Foxes = anachronisms
