Fleet Foxes – White Winter Hymnal

My son introduced me to Fleet Foxes a few months ago, and I finally have their album. This is lovely, soaring music. It reminds me of early English ballads, the sixties, and singing around the campfire. The Claymation works too.

    Thanks for this, Christine. One of their best. FF readily acknowledge their debt to those bands so long in the rock wilderness, Fairport Convention and Steeleye Span. It’s extraordinary how, after decades, the rock/pop mainstream has finally discovered the Anglo-American folk tradition. It provokes s slightly sardonic smile from those of us who, for so long, were mocked for being finger-in-the-ear traddies!
