fair Maida // Fleet Foxes perform new songs

Fleet Foxes performed 8 songs (6 new!) on Zane Lowe’s BBC show.

Listen to Bedouin Dress below and click through for the rest.


new video // Fleet Foxes : “Grown Ocean”

Pretty impressive song and video by one of the favorites around these parts—Fleet Foxes.

new song // Fleet Foxes : “Battery Kinzie”

Sounding more and more like Simon and Garfunkel (which, in hindsight, also makes their other song released from this album sound more like S&G and less like CSN&Y.)  And that’s not a bad thing.  Peter likes it.

new song // Fleet Foxes : “Helplessness Blues”

And they’re back—and as gorgeous as ever.  Peter really likes the lyrics to this song—expresses a lot of feelings he’s been having lately.  Is Robin Pecknold the Paul Simon of our generation?  Sounding a lot like Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, too . . .

favorite music of 2009.

I don’t feel complete unless I’ve compiled a list ranking my favorite music of the year (too many NYEs spent up late listening to the top 100 countdown on the headphones.)  So, here goes:

favorite 30 albums
top 5 albums
favorite 20 songs
favorite 10 videos


new favorite video: fleet foxes “mykonos”

I think it’s fairly well-documented that Fleet Foxes is well-loved in our household. Well, if they hadn’t been, this video would’ve sealed the deal. I’m one part delighted by it and one part upset I didn’t make it myself.

Here’s the “making of” video.
