    Default You heard Fleet Foxes?

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

    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.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    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.

    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. Got some for SD and it saved at least $15 in fees.

    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.
