Fleet Foxes is one of those bands that I feared was too good to be true. Their vocals and harmonies are so polished on their EP and self-titled debut, it wouldn't have surprised me if it was a product of technology and good production.
I couldn't have been more wrong. These guys are for real. Even with lead singer Robin Pecknold sick, they still made great music and belted out incredible harmonies for the sold out Black Cat. I was happy to see that for the most part the crowd cooperated as well, keeping the chatter to a minimum during songs. But if they were like me, it was because they were both captivated and blown away by Fleet Foxes' sound.
Don't take my word for it, listen for yourself on NPR.
