alone at the end of the day, i am just like the gathering fog


If you are somewhere that you can wrap something warm around you and drink something hot from a mug, you should probably do that for this gorgeous, translucent song. Robin Pecknold of the Fleet Foxes recorded three acoustic demo songs a few weeks ago in Los Angeles, one with Ed Droste of Grizzly Bear, and he released them into the world last night via twitter.

Their voices blend together more perfectly than almost any two I can think of. Haunting and beautiful.

I’m Losing Myself (with Ed Droste of Grizzly Bear) – Robin Pecknold

Also released from this session are Robin’s new solo song “Derwentwater Stones” and a cover of Chris Thompson’s “Where Is My Wild Rose.” Download all three songs here.

  • Heather – I take it back and demand forgiveness following my rather snotty comment about the admittedly horrible “Walk the moon”! This session by Robin Pecknold is a towering piece of acoustic music particularly Derwentwater Stones and has me “champing at the bit” for the release of Helplessness Blues by the Fleet Foxes in May, with its already available title track camped on my I Touch. In the meantime Josh T Pearson’s “Last of the Country gentlemen” available next week in the UK will be a bleak country masterpiece that should tide us over.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
