The countryside has come alive with the uncertain harmonies of the wind and the trees; the piper prances through the meadows, a band of squirrels trailing close behind. Fleet Foxes are there too: shimmering voices straining to match the cadences of the Earth below. The bushy-tailed quintet has been absent for quite some time, now. Chased by hounds to the far corners of the isle, they’ve picked up the sounds of the city, the insights of the urbane, and the knowledge that only time can afford. Even now, home at last, the language of trees is still spoken. The grass is still warm, friendly. The piper will ramble with the seasons, but the Fleet Foxes have learned his songs.
The Sun Giant EP was released yesterday through SubPop.
