I feel as though any day could bring news of the Fleet Foxes upcoming sophomore LP, but still we wait. In the meantime, however, there is some news out of their camp regarding new music.
1. The Fleet Foxes' drummer is J. Tillman, who was on the scene before Robin Pecknold even graduated high school. Tillman's pretty prolific too, having released six LPs since 2005. Make it seven now, as Tillman will unleash The Singing Ax on September 14th. Last year's Year In the Kingdom was pretty darned good, especially if you like folk music that's barren and earnest. I know I do!
2. Speaking of young squire Robin, he's on tour with Joanna Newsom as previously mentioned, and he recently debuted a new song. It's really good. Listen here:
Will it show up on the new album? We'll have to wait and see.
