NEWS: Possibly the saddest sight ever:


I love Fleet Foxes. We got to see them in May at Sasquatch, and since then they've been a regular on my 'Recently Played' playlist (see right). Their wistful choral arrangements and starkly arranged but perfectly timed instrumentation has been one of the most refreshing things I've heard in a long time. So we were excited to see them last night at Salt Lake's Kilby Court - but alas, it wasn't to be. No, we were instead greeted by this sad display outside of the Kilby Court-yard entrance (see above), sending us back out into the night with no direction or plan. Regardless, we did get to see some impromptu fireworks and run into some old friends - so even though the only Fleet Foxes we got to hear were on my car stereo, it still turned out to be a pretty good night.

'Dear Fleet Foxes,

We hope everyone's alright and you're able to get back on the road soon. Because the more people who get to hear your heart-felt folky voices, the better off this world will be.

Love,
whale in a cubicle'

from the album Fleet Foxes (Amazon/iTunes)
