The Witching Hours Session – Fleet Foxes

The Witching Hours Session – 06/04/2018

Fleet Foxes.

Fleet Foxes are an American indie folk band formed in Seattle, Washington. The band came to prominence in 2008 with the release of their self-titled debut album. Fleet Foxes’ second studio album, ‘Helplessness Blues’, was released in 2011, and their third album, ‘Crack-Up’, was released in 2017. their music fused earthy, harmony-rich indie folk with a sense of lush pop sophistication that called to mind the late-’60s work of the Beach Boys, the Zombies, and Crosby, Stills, & Nash.

Tonight’s listening;

1 – Fleet Foxes (2008)

Borrowing from ageless folk and classic rock on their self-titled debut album Fleet Foxes don’t just master the art of taking familiar influences and making them sound fresh again, they give a striking sense of who they are and what their world is ike. CSNY would have been proud to call this record their own, so it’s not really that surprising that ‘Fleet Foxes’ is such a satisfying, self-assured debut

2 – Helplessness Blues (2011)

On their second album, Fleet Foxes continue to take their music in unusual directions, creating a folk-pop sound that hints at a number of influences — Simon & Garfunkel, Fairport Convention, the Beach Boys — but is too unique to warrant any direct links between the band and their predecessors. It’s downright gorgeous record, though, filled to the brim with lovely harmonies. Still, it’s the music that stands out, and the band’s acoustic folk/chamber pop makes every song sound like a grand tribute to back-to-the-land living.

3 – Crack-Up (2017)

Orchestral, experimental, and more challenging than either of the band’s previous releases.For Fleet Foxes, it represents a shift away from their more idyllic early days into a period of artistic growth and sophistication. a fine album.
