sunday morning tinged folk pop, ala beach boys/nick drake,
This review is from: Fleet Foxes (Audio CD)
This album is by far one of the best things to come out in 2008. i hadnt heard a great deal by this band but i was drawn to the depth and consideration which had went inot the album artwork.
Its hard to pin point a particular artist to which to compare fleet foxes too, its more like a combination of many, midlake, nick drake, neil young, my morning jacket.
All of which are most def worth a listen if you like this album. to me there isnt a bad track on the album and everyone is a musical array on the ears, star spangled, acid tinged pop/folk at its very finest.
To me there are a few stand out tracks on the album, 'ragged wood' is by far my favourite, its one of those tracks which you hope never ends or is constantly on repeat! its like two or three songs in one, constant tempo and beat changes throughout the song, a most ecclectic haunting voice throughout.
'He doesnt know why' is another stand out track, this is something you could imagine a slowed down beach boys to sound like, poppy tambourine beats and catchy words to hum along to. In fact most tracks on the album are my favourites but just wanted to pick out a few of the best in my opinion.
Like i mentioned there isnt a bad track on album, its not a long album so its highly unlikey you will get sick of it. ive had it for months now and still remains a constant favourite on my decks!
