Fleet Foxes



Debut album was just released and, I must say, this is the best record I've heard so far this year. It's absolutely gorgeous. I know Cori and U2popmofo are also into this band, so I figured there might be enough interest to make a thread for them.

Guys, seriously, listen to this record.

It's on my list of albums to get, I looked them up on YouTube some time ago and it sounds delicious. I can never get enough of this kind of music,

I've tried really, really hard to enjoy/understand this record, but I haven't yet succeeded in doing either of these things. I thought that the Sun Giant EP had its moments, but this one isn't resonating. I will keep trying, though.

Can pro-Foxes types suggest a good starting point or points, on the record? I am finding it a bit too pristine, as a long-player...

This is an album I've heard a lot of fuss about. I might need to check it out. They're opening for Wilco in August, but not when I'm going to see them.

The singer in my band knows them, and knew the singer when he ditched his old band (in an ass-like way) and hired a bunch of "music-pro's" 10-15 years older than him to play music with him. That and they spent a ton of money to work with the producer of The Shins (I believe). Gotta love that well-oiled supergroup cash-machine.

Too pristine? I'd say Blue Ridge Mountains then.

Oh noez! We're on a U2 forum.

I'd like to check this out as well.

I like it more with each spin.

Wow, they're playing at the Mohawk July 2. I'm in!

I guess so. It'd kinda be like if in 1980, Bono had quit the band and hired a bunch of 35 year old studio musicians so he could write pop hits, though.

So?

I mean, I'm all for musical integrity and all, but if you enjoy it, then what's the rub?

Good to see Pitchfork slopping at the dick of this album, too.

Wow, they gave it 9.0 inches.

I'm glad I read about the band's personal info. Now I won't feel bad for not buying it.

Because of you guys I'm totally gonna check out this album.

If I don't enjoy it, there will be hell to pay.
