Pseudoanorith In reality I have no favorite song; the whole album is amazing.

Thankfully, I first listen to Fleet Foxes when I was young. They acted as my gateway drug to all that is folk. I can't get enough of folk now.

Amazing album that never seems to get old or boring for me. Favorite track: He Doesn't Know Why.

Jake Williams This album contains a lot of memories for me personally, especially from high school and college back in Montana. This is a defining album of modern Indie-folk and alternative music that will surely live on and never become stale the older it ages. Imagery of forests, mountains, streams, soft-colored valleys and meadows, villages steeped in the seasons of fall and winter, etc. can be felt all over this record. I love every track from this! Favorite track: Meadowlarks.

Lukas Taylor The sound they would perfect with Helplessness Blues, spawning more than a decade of me-toos who never quite achieved what Fleet Foxes did on their two first LPs. Favorite track: He Doesn't Know Why.

Jason Feinstein Possibly the greatest winter album of all time Favorite track: White Winter Hymnal.

about

Fleet Foxes are five. There are five of them, and they are from Seattle. They are, for lack of an eminently more marketable descriptor, a group trafficking in baroque harmonic pop. And the joy they derive in doing so is palpable. We feel it too. They are, self-described, not much of a rock band. With the help of credit cards, minimum wages, tip money, friends and family, Fleet Foxes crafted their first demo, and subsequently the Sun Giant EP and this debut full-length album, with family friend Phil Ek manning the rudder. Drawing influence from the traditions of folk music, pop, choral music and gospel, sacred harp singing, West Coast music, traditional music from Ireland to Japan, film scores, and their NW peers, Fleet Foxes ranges in subject matter from the natural world and familial bonds to bygone loves and stone cold graves. Robin Pecknold is in Fleet Foxes: “All we strove for with this record was to make something that was an honest reflection of who we are, citizens of the western United States who love all kinds of music and above all else love singing…” And we believe them.
