After that raving P4K review, I decided to check them out. They have a whole album up on their myspace, and it's pretty awesome. Grizzly Bear-esque in the vocal department, very baroque and booming.

I checked them out after the review also, and definitely liked what I heard...

I saw that article, checked out their myspace and was disappointed.

I, too, am underwhelmed. I should've known, though, because my despicable hipster friend loves them.

No, she's lacking in the facial hair department.

Well I'm pretty sure she has a coochstache then.

edit: muffstache would have been better.

Remember how, less than three years ago, nobody had heard of Fleet Foxes and they were opening for Blitzen Trapper at the Troubadour?

I'm not really a fan, but "White Winter Hymnal" is a lovely tune.

I saw that tour. My friend and I were 2 of 5 people standing on front of the stage. That show is what sold me on Fleet Foxes. They were the nicest guys too. We had beers with them after the show.

they are nice but they smell. they always smell. so bad. j tillman is cool i guess. but yaaaawn to the rest.

I find Fleet Foxes incredibly boring. I tried but couldn't get into them. I saw J. Tillman do an acoustic set at Sasquatch though and it was great. It was at the Yeti while I was grabbing some food, and I think I ended up staying to watch the whole thing. It wasn't until the next year that I found out he was a member of Fleet Foxes though.

Yeah, he's been doing his thing for a long time. I think I saw him for the first time randomly at some coffee shop in 2004 (right before I Will Return came out). I liked what he was doing then more than what he's doing now, but he's definitely a serious step up from the Fleet Foxes stuff.

Not a huge fan of the Fleet Foxes. And if you live in LA and haven't seen them live up until now but want to, skip the Palladium show and wait until next time. Unless you're in the front, people chit chat like no other at that venue, and after hearing how bad the crowd was at Grizzly Bear there I can only imagine the talking will be that much more distracting for FF.

If you plan on going to the LA show... I'd recommend their presale. (http://www.fleetfoxes.com/tour.html) Got some for SD and it saved at least $15 in fees.

sounds a little neil youngish to me (which is a good thing), but otherwise i would say its a good example of this current folk revival wave

I'm listening to Ragged Wood right now. I already liked them in 2009, but didn't get a chance to see them at Coachella. I also missed Band of Horses, due to conflicts, which was really a bummer.

Not sure how to embed Vimeo stuff on here. Can we even do that?

Yeah I can do the YouTube stuff just fine, but I'm not a genius like he is. Maybe he will grace us with his presence and condescendingly explain how it can be done. Chris, you hear that? We need you. Come down from your tower and help us.

Give him a few hours. It's a long trek.

Heard that "Helplessness Blues" leaked today. Anyone know if this is true??

Yes, it's true. You don't want to listen to the leak. Awful quality. Just wait.

Yes, it's true. You don't want to listen to the leak. Awful quality. Just wait.

I saw a couple different people posting it on Pirate Bay and the version I got sounds great. I'm still gonna buy the album and probly the vinyl when they get to San Diego in May.

Found out about FF when I moved to Yosemite 4 years ago. I can't even begin to describe how the sounds of how FF perfectly fit certain hikes or bike rides I had when spending some time alone in the forest.

Not true. I got a nice 320 kbps version off a private tracker and it's been confirmed to be legit - not a transcode.

It's a fantastic album, too.
