Fleet Foxes was the band that I couldn’t shut up about this year. Ask me for music suggestions, and Fleet Foxes was my automatic response. I’ve bonded with friends, coworkers, strangers who comment here, strangers at shows, etc. over our mutual love of Fleet Foxes. I would talk about this band to anyone who would listen or humor me by pretending to listen. After seeing them at their first New York show back in March, I was pretty much sold for life. Yes, I couldn’t get enough of their live shows, and I ended up seeing them four times this past year. And, I've dragged plenty of people with me to those shows. I can't imagine 2008 without Fleet Foxes, and you probably can't imagine it without my talking about them. I still remember humming "English House" while studying for a midterm during my last semester. I think I failed that exam.
