Can't Get Enough of the Fleet Foxes

Way back in March, we told you all about how Fleet Foxes were poised to become the next great indie darlings. Their EP, Sun Giant, was absolutely beautiful, and their eponymous debut LP is rightly regarded as one of the best releases of the year. In the UK, this Seattle quintet has blown up beyond your blogospherical atmosphere and into the real world, competing with Coldplay for tops o' the charts. Just the other day Chicago's WXRT fit the Foxes into a rush hour lineup (somehow, breaking into F.M. radio seems like a measure of success, assuming you're an indie band and not a Disney-backed starlet).

Here they are with a startling claymation video for "White Winter Hymnal":

And a Black Cab Session performance from Robin Pecknold of a deep track - Judee Sill's "Crayon Angels":

Go get the album.
