Dedicated to the art of song and maybe even Buffalo hunting.

The debut long player from Seattle's Fleet Foxes has slowly been making its way up the ranks as a serious contender for record of the year. After last weeks tear inducing or should I say "beard" inducing performance at San Francisco's Bottom of The Hill they may have done just that. Absolutely amazing is what comes to mind and when I think about it, I haven't had a chance to say that for quite some time. Strong compositions, tight four-part harmonies soaking in reverb and a group of players as seamless as I've seen in five years or so. Stay tuned cuz these Fleet Foxes are onto something and remind me of a time when music was simple, eloquent and just plain good. See you in Portland on July 25th.
