Someone mentioned Fleet Foxes to me at the linuxcaffe a few weeks ago and I've just now got around to finding some of their stuff online. Their Sub Pop bio page describes their influences as drawing upon, to quote band member Robin:
the traditions of folk music, pop, choral music and gospel, baroque psychedelic, sacred harp singing, West Coast music, traditional music from Ireland to Japan, and film scores.
Fabulist! have an amazing claymation video that the band did of their song White Winter Hymnal.
Captain Obvious notes that a band member is formerly of Pedro the Lion and links to an amazing acoustic track called Tiger Mountain Peasant Song. I can't place it, but the introduction reminds me of something vaguely like Radiohead's Karma police combined with Great Lake Swimmers. Might just be the reverb on the voice and plain acoustic guitar, but it is a fabulous track! The harmonies on Quiet Houses do their Sub Pop bio description justice, have a listen to it too.
Without further ado, take a look at the video, and make sure there's a spot on the ipod or favoured portable audio device for a few of their songs:
