When Fleet Foxes EP and, quickly thereafter, self-titled long-player were released in 2008, it was easy to presume that maybe that was it—that their debut would be the highest note they’d hit.

Recording under the moniker White Antelope, Fleet Foxes principal singer/songwriter Robin Pecknold continues to tackle folk covers on his MySpace page.  Big thanks to Kyle for both the heads up and mp3 rips.  I could listen to an entire album of these (hint, hint).  Fleet Foxes perform at the Sasquatch festival this weekend.

Since 2004, (Fleet Foxes) J. Tillman has quietly been releasing records, some of limited quantity, some mostly available in Europe, but for the most part, unheard. The borderline-alienating starkness and well lived-in narratives of his first two records, “I Will Return” and “Long May You Run, J. Tillman” (released in limited runs of 150) endeared […]

In the span of six months Fleet Foxes have released two of my favorite recordings this year (so far anyway) — the Sun Giant EP, and the self-titled Fleet Foxes LP. We’re excited to present the groups upcoming back-to-back dates, here in Los Angeles, at The Echo (June 28th) and Spaceland (June 29th) We are […]
