Fleet Foxes

. May 21, 2012.

Throughout the last few years, the Fleet Foxes have been widely compared to the gentle, harmonious folk-rock of the 60s. While similar qualities do apply, the problem with that categorization is they’re not making that style of music fresh again, they’re making a sound all their own, one that bounces from softly contained to  full and energetic, mixed with air-tight songwriting that is poetic yet straightforward. And this Pacific Northwest outfit has been on fire since 2008, developing an international following and gathering critical acclaim for their debut self-titled album. Making this show extra “worth it” is opening act The Walkmen. These indie rockers are capable of headlining themselves. They play pop-rock with a penchant for vintage
sounds and instruments. UofM Campus.
