EDITORS’ NOTES

With a tender touch, this Seattle band’s debut unites old Appalachia with Fleetwood Mac’s dynamic, and the Beach Boys’ heavenly harmonies. Fleet Foxes conveys fathomless depth: the bold canyon cries of “Ragged Wood” contrast with Robin Pecknold’s sylvan vocals on “He Doesn’t Know Why”; the bucolic strumming of “Sun It Rises” against the weightier “Tiger Mountain Peasant Song.” Little compares to their miraculous vocals: the disturbing harmonies of “White Winter Hymnal”, and Pecknold’s acapella turn on “Oliver James”.
