First of all, I'd like to say I apologize for going AWOL for a while! Some big changes over the past few months have prevented me from dedicating time to this project, but now I'm happy to say that I'm back to so-called "blogosphere" and I look forward to reading your comments and visiting your blogs!
Fleet Foxes are a Seattle-based indie folk band. According to the Wikipedia, "the quintet describes its music as 'baroque harmonic pop jams'", which is really a quite accurate description of their sound. They've received a lot of praise and critical acclaim, and it's all VERY well-deserved in my opinion. Fleet Foxes are one of my favourite bands these days, mainly because I appreciate their beautiful melodies, complex harmonies, and resonant lyrics.
They just released their second album, Helplessness Blues, on 3 May, and after a few listens I can definitely say I enjoy it as much as their self-titled debut (which is hard to top!). Check them out!
