This might be my overall favorite record of the last ten years or so. It took me 4-5 spins before I started to get the feel of it, but once you start to recognize these melodies it will blossom into a celebratory exploration of nature and family. I read once that "Fleet foxes is defiant against despair". That's how I feel about them. While the world burns, they sing about sunrises, birds, family, and the weather. I can sing every word to this entire album. Highly recommend. But give it a few spins before you reject it. I didn't love it the first couple of times I heard it.
My Favorite Albums Ever
Possibly my favorite album of all time. Maybe. I put this on every time I'm on a road trip and I revel in the joy and celebration of it. During covid I was driving through town singing He Doesn't Know Why and I literally started crying! These songs are all pure, natural, and moving to me.
