Somehow, I haven’t heard this band from my own town until just now.
I’m listening to Fleet Foxes and I have that electrifying feeling of a Big Discovery, thanks to the simultaneous eruption of enthusiasm from several friends this week (Josh Hurst, Opus, and others at Arts and Faith).
This record looks likely to earn a long-term place in my car’s 5-disc changer. A new soundtrack for the daily commute. A welcoming blaze to take the chill off mornings that are still cold and rainy in Seattle.
