Fleet Foxes on SNL
As someone who grew up in the 70s, I find Fleet Foxes a wonderful breath of life in contemporary music. They have the joy behind their arrangements that feels territory, even if their influences can be listed down the line from My Morning Jacket to The Beach Boys on to Fairport Convention and Queen Elizabeth.
Another clip to show how their Sun Giant EP and their full-length, eponymous collection weren’t just studio tricks. Get both. I’m liking them more and more over time (even if the baroque elements might get a little pretentious at times, which kept me at a little distance for awhile).
Go here for some very nice live mp3s:
