Star Fleet

DON'T be fooled by the title of Fleet Foxes - the music isn't especially fast-paced, and the men playing it are decidely average looking and a bit hairy for my taste.
That aside their eponymous debut offering, which is likely to top a hell of a lot of Best Of 2008 polls, is a brilliant body of work.
The Seattle group's album is a rich, evocative work, mixing the '60s pop harmonies of all-time classics such as The Beach Boys' Pet Sounds with a classical twist.
If you haven't heard it yet. it might be time to catch up with Fleet Foxes.

  1. Isaac,

    great blog - this album is indeed excellent, a little bit clinical in places, but it will be fascinating to see what they do next..
