Fleet Foxes

It's official - my favorite album of 2008 so far is by Fleet Foxes. Take a listen to the a cappella opening of White Winter Hymnal to see what they are all about.

Here's a Paste Magazine interview with the acoustically-oriented Seattle-based folksy band.

From NPR Music:
Robin Pecknold and Skye Skyelset are backed by some of Seattle's best musicians, formerly and currently in bands such as Pedro the Lion, Seldom, and Crystal Skulls. Through the support of friends, families, and credit cards, material for both the Sun Giant EP and Fleet Foxes' self-titled debut were recorded. On both, the band draws from the baroque, psychedelic pop of the '60s, sacred harp singing, gospel, and folk music.
