    Fleet Foxes Official Website

    Albums

    2008 Fleet Foxes
    2011 Helplessness Blues

    So I have to say, these guys are some of the best musicians I have seen for a long time. Everything about their mellow, folkish "baroque pop" sound is beautiful.


    They are seriously my favorite folk artists (other than Nick Drake)

    This is one of those bands that you really need to see live if you like them. They have this sense of humor on stage that is just great and it helps to loosen you up for their songs. Saw em a couple years ago. I definitely plan on seeing them again. Their new albums coming out soon, I cant wait.

    Exactly, great band that's bringing good old vibes of folk with beautiful harmonies. Their "Helplessness Blues" is truly a masterpiece, there's no bad song on it and I see them as CSNY of our time. And what's best, they're really popular and they're not trying to add indie rock sounds to it, just keepin' it real.

    This is masterpiece, mandolin part on 2:21 is so epic.
