I don't usually recommend music on Upright & Stowed. But my friend Rob was visiting from San Francisco last week and he introduced me to Fleet Foxes, an indie band from Seattle. When I listen, I hear part Crosby, Stills and Nash ... part Neal Young ... a touch of Radiohead ... some Irish folk ... a wee bit of Pat Metheny ... a minor dose of Beach Boys. Frankly, I don't have the musical vocabulary to adequately describe Fleet Foxes. Suffice it to say their music is sublimely gorgeous and I'd recommend it to anyone I know. Check em out here. Thank you Rob.
