I like to wank and listen to Fleet Foxes, though not necessarily at the same time.

They sound like Simon and Garfunkle with a splash of the Shins and the Beach Boys. To me, anyway.

That sounds about right. Basically, Fleet Foxes sound like a group of baby boomers who recorded a folk album in the back of a cave in the mountains of Tennessee.

When an indie band is recognized as essential by as "mainstream" a publication as Rolling Stone, you can't talk about being underrated, anymore.

I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One is a brilliant record, too! To hell with new records, I say. Just look for good ones. You'll find precious few as deep, rewarding, and multifaceted as the one in question.
YLT is underrated around these parts, I meant. I've not once seen them discussed around here, not even after their recent, stellar ...Beat Your Ass.

And I admit the KOL thing was a bit of a reach, but I actually do enjoy that album. And it came out when they were quasi-indie.

I regret not including an H in that last. Rest assure if I did, it would have recommended Happy Songs for Happy People.

Is this another wanking reference?

I have a decent amount of hair on my legs so that would suck.
