Fleet Foxes

It wasn’t until a few years later though, in 2006, when the boys emerged, and began shaking out some of the basement-born tunes live as FleetFoxes. They created new songs, scrapped the old, then created more and scrapped them too, eventually finding a few that fit just about right,along with some new friends who emerged from Seattle’s musical woodwork: keyboardist Casey Wescott (Seldom), drummer Joshua Tillman, andbassist Christian Wargo (Crystal Skulls).

It wasn’t until a few years later though, in 2006, when the boys emerged, and began shaking out some of the basement-born tunes live as FleetFoxes. They created new songs, scrapped the old, then created more and scrapped them too, eventually finding a few that fit just about right,along with some new friends who emerged from Seattle’s musical woodwork: keyboardist Casey Wescott (Seldom), drummer Joshua Tillman, andbassist Christian Wargo (Crystal Skulls). From the Fox den, with the help of credit cards, minimum wages, tip money, friends and family, theboys worked, crafting their first demo, and subsequently the Sun Giant EP and this debut full-length album, with family friend (and Pecknoldchildhood hero) Phil Ek manning the rudder.As far as the music? Robin puts it best: “We aim to be adventurous and true to ourselves and to enjoy our time together—the music we make isa reflection of our instincts. To me, the most enjoyable thing in the world is to sing harmony with people, so we do that a bunch. We loveacoustic guitars, electric guitars, big rolling tom drums, mandolins, dulcimers, bass guitars, bass pedals, organs, pianos, kotos, and most of allharmony and melody. We’ve succeeded for ourselves if we’ve made a song where every instrument is doing somethinginteresting and melodic. We try to draw from the traditions of folk music, pop, choral music and gospel, baroque psychedelic, sacred harpsinging, West Coast music, traditional music from Ireland to Japan, and film scores, and are inspired by the music of our friends andcontemporaries in the Seattle music family.” http://www.subpop.com/bio/fleet_foxes « hide
