Crack-Up by Fleet Foxes

Technical Aspects
Reader Rating0 Votes
Pushing the boundaries of orchestral indie folk, creating a stunning garden of sound and emotion.
Not a quick listen, Demands time and patience to be truly enjoyed.

One quick listen to Robin Pecknolds’ whimsical and warm toned vocal will soothe your heart, draw your mind into a fantastically melancholy world that seems to only be available to you; a space that might have been built specifically for you.

Starting off where their last album finished off, the opening notes of the first track “I Am All That I Need / Arroyo Seco / Thumbprint Scar”  are connected from the trailing notes in “Grown Ocean” from their previous Album, “Helplessness Blues.” This connection provides a symphonic and intertwined progression that calls for continued listening.

Symphonic harmonies and imaginative arrangements have pushed the depth and musicianship of the band. The albums expressions are a pleasant accomplishment that have taken the bands sound beyond their indie folk contemporaries in such a melodious elegance and finesse.
