Fleet Foxes – Sun Giant

April 23, 2008

I’m sure I’m already the thousandth person to compare them to My Morning Jacket and Band of Horses, but I also hear some 60s psychadelic influences.

Regardless, get to know these guys before you see them on the next Ford Focus commercial. Check out this live version of “Mykonos,” the fourth of Sun Giant‘s five tracks. Wish I could afford to skip work, chill by the water and listen to this on repeat:
