Fleet Foxes Resurface: Mid-Week Song
Popular indie folk rock band Fleet Foxes last released an album six years ago, so the announcement that they were working on a new, third album was well received. The album, "Crack Up", will be released on June 16, and yesterday the band released the first single off that album, the nearly 9 minute-long multi-part, multi-genre opus "Third of May / Ōdaigahara." (Mount Ōdaigahara is a mountain in the Daikō Mountain Range of Japan and a designated Man and the Biosphere Preserve by UNESCO).
