RIYL: Grizzly Bear, Local Natives, Father John Misty

Label: Anti Records

Robin Pecknold, a household name since Fleet Foxes’ astronomical debut record in 2008, surprised and delighted the tired and aching masses today with a brand new full-length titled Shore. An album so immediate and beautiful and tender that it just doesn’t fit into our world’s current trajectory, Fleet Foxes have once again melded indie rock, folk and chamber pop into that singular angelic sound we all know and love. Still, you’re not getting a rehashed and recycled set of songs here. With every album, Pecknold and company find new harmonies that we never knew were there, new subject matter to celebrate that we didn’t know existed and a new hope in the seemingly infinite possibilities of guitar-oriented music.

If you’re just now getting word of the new vinyl, we’re sorry. The red clay variant from Fleet Foxes’ website has just sold out. It sold out as I was writing this actually. Damn it. The GOOD news is that there are at least 3 other variants still available. Vinyl Me, Please has a blue variant limited to 2500 copies HERE, but is currently only available to subscribers. There is also an ocean blue swirl colorway on the Fleet Foxes storefront that you can grab after the ‘buy’ link. UK folks can go HERE for that version. There will also be an indie exclusive ‘crystal clear’ variant as well that is already popping up in online distros. Listen to the entire album below.
