Come down from the mountain, you have been gone too long
The spring is upon us, follow my ornate song
Settle down with me by the fire of my yearning
You should come back home, back on your own now

The world is alive now, in and outside our home
You run through the forest settled before the sun
Darling, I can barely remember you beside me
You should come back home, back on your own now
You should come back home, back on your own now

In the evening light, when the woman of the woods came by
To give to you the word of the old man
In the morning tide, when the sparrow and the seagull fly
And Jonathan and Evelyn get tired

Lie to me if you will
At the top of Barringer Hill
Tell me anything you want, any old lie will do
Call me back to, back to you

Lie to me if you will
At the top of Barringer Hill
Tell me anything you want, any old lie will do
Call me back to, back to you

This feels like Snakes and Ladders to my ears.  I gave it a 1 first time, then felt a little easier today so started to elevate it to a 3.  The song then degraded towards the end and it slid back down again.  Oh well, I tried.  I'm sure nobody's upset.

I wish it was Fleeting Foxes. 
All Indie Folk blows and needs to go away.

well played
Back in those halcyon times before the (excellent, Mick Fleetwood-esque) drummer's head disappeared up his bottom and he turned into the pretentious twat known as Father John Misty.
Here in Brooklyn Fleet Foxes is like wallpaper. Dated wallpaper.

Dear god that was jarring wasn't it.  Bill, if your listening you need to adjust this one!

 
Still happening in April. 
I wish there was a rating for 'Substantial'. I take these guys seriously.

Except when the beginning of their song overlaps/cuts off Van the Man's preceding song!  (Oh no!)     {#Rolleyes}

I like Fleet Foxes.  The name always brings me back to the day I was walking with my then fiance (now wife) near our home.  A pair of foxes ran out from under some bushes, chased each other across the road, and disappeared into a tree farm.  We never did see those foxes again.

wasn't this picture used in an earlier Deep Purple cover
 
Deep Purple used a detail from Bosch's "Garden Of Earthly Delights".

The painting on the Fleet Foxes album cover is "Netherlandish Proverbs", which, as pointed out a few times below, was painted by Pieter Bruegel, the Elder. 
At first I didn't care for this, but then the change midway through kind of perked my ears up a bit. I few more listens may turn this into a favorite, I think.
Don't you love how music messes with your head like that?
Huh, sounds like Fleet Foxes.
XXXTREM-SUCKO!
I like many tunes on this album. Nice to hear something different from it. Kinda used to 'Your Protector'...glad to hear something a bit different.

Hmmm............  Not bad.


My Morning Echo.
Not my favorite band, but better than Mumf and sons.

seriously? they were sold out two nights in a row when I was in Chicago, and i felt kind of bad about missing them....maybe it was a good thing i did...

I agree, and then when I realize that it is not Billy Joel, I am so very relieved.

The whole album is great!  Another band of many I found llistening to Radio Paradise... Bill and Rebecca are the BEST in my book, love you guys!
vocals just don't cut it for me. 
haha...do you mean MMJ?

Damn.  I must just have a thing for Fleet Foxes, Band of Horses, Radiohead, Elbow, and, oh, that other band in this genré.

This is meant in a good way. I'm about to spend a lot of money on these bands, and it's all RadioParadise's fault.

Yep. Loves me my RadioParadise. Hates me my RadioParadise. And bottom line: Loves me my RadioParadise.

Quite.  Doing....epigrams?  Is that the word?  A stitch in time...Little fish eat big fish. The Dutch have a hatful of them.  Breughel.  Wonderful painter.

 
No, it's just that this particular painting is by the father, not the son...

What I've heard, I haven't liked.  That said, I found I just liked this a lot.

5, only because this song is a little too derivative as other listeners have noted.
 
OK, I'll change it to a 6 because, although derivative, this song is pleasant to listen to.

Oh that's easy, if I like it, it is this band. If it sucks ass, it is My Morning Jacket, mystery solved!{#Cheers}
Sounds kinda like M. Ward and this is a good thing!{#Clap}
God, I love these guys—-the slow, middle part of the song very pretty—-just got the album.
Awsome.  Got a lot of airplay on KXT in Dallas.

Yeah, I was fooled too. This is less swoopy and more melodic than MMJ. Worth an 8 for me.

It's kinda fun to download a high res version of this album cover, then open in an image program and zoom around looking at all the stuff going on in the picture. Here's a link to a 900 X 900 file.

Whoa! Thanks a lot!


I thought this was MMJ. I can't decide.{#Stupid}
Either way I give it a 7.

Nice transition Bill!
Never heard that one before; very nice. First time I've heard of this group too, I think. Love RP!
I cannot place the song, but King Crimson has almost exactly the same guitar chord progression, albeit more jangly, in one of their songs. The tempo is, obviously, more subdued in any Fleet Foxes piece.

Cover? Who did the original?

Great song, great cover...not surprising to find it in a great radio ;)

WHAT DID YOU SAY?? {#Roflol} Is that you Simon Cowell? There are so many quiet, whispery singers these days, I like to hear someone belt out a tune for a change.

Sparrows, seagulls, hills, lies—I have no idea what's going on.  But I know that the last piece of this is glorious.

Makes me feel warm and fuzzy like Iron & Wine

''Indubitably Pre-Eminent'', what more can I say... {#Smile}

Good song..outstanding album.
I wish I could rate this song "11" - Beyond Godlike.
This is the best thing I've heard from FF yet!!!
I didn't even have to hit the mute button this time!

You should add a logic filter to your keyboard so you have a better chance of making sense.

What the french is that supposed to mean?! Go back to listening to Hannity, we won't miss ya. 

this is certainly not "all that". I own it and can hardly ever get inspired enough to play it.
wasn't this picture used in an earlier Deep Purple cover
Terrific album. It's got a very organic sound - by that I mean very little studio manipulation, probably recorded on analog equipment, no synthesizers - back to basics, acoustic(although many songs have electric instruments) but I wouldn't call it rootsy.

Saw them open for Death Cab (I believe Young is now) and they sounded great live. I wish they had more material to share that night.
 
I saw them there too, my friends and i really enjoyed them! They did put on a good live show!  The only thing that bothered me was that they didn't have much variety to their style. But since what they were playing was good, i wasn't that disappointed :)

Edit: am extremely impressed with Vandal's collection of colorful disgusted pictures, although i have to disagree with their assessment :)


Pretty weak song from an excellent band.

Back to youuuuuuuu!

Blah... 

I wish there was a crooning banana!
I'm just hearing arcade fire. And I'm not really being inspired by it.

Strangely, I hear Glen Campbell in the rhythm section.
A little Grateful Dead influence in there.
This cd is definitely on my list for best of the year. Very enjoyable, every song. First day I got it, I listened 3 times.

Bought the EP and thought it was just ok.  Anyone recommend this?
 
I sampled all their stuff on Amazon MP3 and bought the album and EP. If you like what you hear here on RP I think you'll like the rest.
