...just one of my indie obsessions!! 'White Winter Hymnal' and 'Mykonos' are definitely favorites! They're not for everyone, but I really dig them and are worth checking out!

    I like them for a nice chill out album. Their harmonizing is top notch. Would like to see them live to see the interchanging of vocals. Hopefully they put a new album out soon.
    If there were no Angels would there be no sin?
  • can't wait for their new album. saw them twice last year. met them twice. extremely nice guys. both times were general admission so me and my girl were front and center against the stage. definitely a "stage banter" band

    Not to take anything away from fleet foxes because i love them and i think they are better then the ganglians, but for those who dig that sound and style a good ablum in the same vein that came out this year is:

    They put out a self title ep in 2006:
    "She Got Dressed" – 3:29
    "In the Hot, Hot Rays" – 3:04
    "Anyone Who's Anyone" – 3:50
    "Textbook Love" – 3:25
    "So Long to the Headstrong" – 4:16
    "Icicle Tusk" – 4:38

    Then they put out the Sun Giant EP & Self title full length in 2008.

    I only have the sun giant ep and self titled.

    anyone know where one could find the self titled ep? pm me if you happen to know :D

    I saw them at Lollapalooza over the summer. Incredibly fantastic. They opened with the songs Sun Giant and Sun it Rises both kind of together and the harmonies were top notch. It's cool to see that they can keep the harmonies together not only on studio album but live in front of thousands of people.

    I had to do a google search for it but eventually I downloaded it from some website that was probabyl illegal lol. I can't remember the link though, just keep searching around.

    Good luck finding it, just letting you know that it is not as good as the other ep and the full album.

    i finally listened to it, and while i agree that it's not really as good as their other music, it is still good. just different, more straightforward indie-rock sound (if there is such a thing) than their other music, which i find to be pretty distinctive...
  • Just pulled out the Sun Giant EP for the first time in a few months. With the colder weather and the clouds, hit just right like a Winter Ale can around this time of year. I can't wait to see them live.

    Drops in the River and Mykonos get me everytime.

    from wiki.
    On June 15th, 2013, an image of a home recording set-up, including a Macbook air, microphone, and guitar, was posted on the Fleet Foxes Facebook page with the caption "Step one". The next day an image of a broken mandolin with the caption "Step two" was posted. These images have led to speculation that the group is working on a new project, possibly a third studio album.

    Hopefully new album from them. Maybe a tour or (open for Pearl Jam?)

  • Awesome!! Too long, but Robin went back to school so figured that was the real reason they went on hiatus.
