#1 Fleet Foxes - Fleet Foxes

Little Pacific Northwest indie folk rock group combines perfect melodies, harmonizes like angels, breathtakingly blends the essential elements of folk, lore, blues, rock, and pop sensibilities.

All the elements of music that I am drawn to are present here, as if the album were composed for my inner being.

The early Spring tease of an EP gave way to the most stunning album of the year in Fleet Foxes. Without question the band of the year. Vampire Weekend was a close second but their music doesn’t have near the soul or earnestness.

There isn’t much to say about this album and it’s EP that hasn’t already been said so I will simply state that this album deserves numerous listens and the hype is well deserved.

Congrats Fleet Foxes and here’s to the work to come!
