I Heart Foxes 4 Eva

I'm in love with the dreamy soundz of Fleet Foxes, a supremely lovely band from Washington releasing through Sub Pop/Bella Union. Fans of My Morning Jacket, Band of Horses, Crosy Stills Nash and other reverb soaked late 60s/early 70s types should get right into them... They've released an 11 song self titled album and a 5 song EP called Sun Giant. "English House" is the standout from the aforementioned EP, and you can listen to it on their myspace page. I mentioned them in an earlier post, and i might try to include a tune in my upcoming podcast.

They're also on tour with Blitzen Trapper and playing around New York when i'm there in April! Double Rad.

disclaimer: I think part of my new obsession is a general love for all things foxy... in fact my own acoustic project is called Fox and Siren.

You've got me hooked now too.

Hopefully they're not one of those random discoveries that never make it to Australia.

I hope so too. We'll have to see if they catch on, or if someone cluey brings them over!
