Fleet Foxes may have a firm grasp on rock and folk history, but they never play to their record collection. Rather than revive a particular scene or re-create a lost sound, the Seattle quintet cherrypick their ideas from a broad spectrum of styles, pulling in Appalachian folk, classic rock, AM country, and SoCal pop to create a personal synthesis of the music of their peers, their parents, and even their grandparents . Heard Them Stirring" has no lyrics, but it's hard to call it an instrumental.
Amid the frenetic pace of 21st-century digital living, Fleet Foxes’ debut album serves as a tranquil woodland retreat where time slows to a crawl. But the group trade cabin-in-the-woods solitude for widescreen, canyon-filling grandeur. When they lock into choir-like formation on White Winter Hymnal and He Doesn’t Know Why, they effectively resemble a landlocked Beach Boys, with the surfboards and soda pops replaced by chopped logs and cans of beans cooked on an open flame.
