Fleet Foxes Fleet Foxes · Melvins Nude With Boots · Gavin Rossdale Wanderlust

Fleet Foxes' debut evokes wide-open spaces and adventures in the wilderness. When you’re finished cutting through vines of choral singing and sloshing through rivers of reverberating guitars, you realize the reward is in the journey. Sometimes ’70s Southern rock is the backdrop, while on other occasions, the band goes with a luscious soundscape of multipart harmonies. While it’s never disorienting, the record is completely devoid of a standard verse-chorus-verse structure, instead wafting from part to part like a feather falling to the ground. Fleet Foxes moves at an unhurried pace, but for a band that digs on atmosphere, things move along relatively quickly. (SM)
