Fleet Foxes on SNL and I Nearly Forgot

Is it old age? Is it sheer disinterest? No, but I feel guilty. While working on a podcast, I totally forgot about the Fleet Foxes, so I missed their first song, but never fear, TMI is on the scene. Anyway, someone want to explain the new random house band they keep cutting to?

Fleet Foxes are playing "Blue Ridge Mountains" and I'm quite thrilled that they sound so strong live. I don't think I could cope otherwise. On a related note,my friend has been sufficiently inspired to take up tambourine.

They're not the most energetic bunch, but they don't need to be. That haunting, rustic sound is entrancing. I will be searching out the first song tomorrow. Stay tuned.
