- Mykonos by Fleet Foxes
8/10 Ant Staff review, 29 January 2009If I were to say that the new Fleet Foxes 7" on Bella Union sounds like the imaginary soundtrack to a gerbil snuff movie then I'm sure we'd sell loads anyway as they seem to be incredibly popular. They've sold shitloads of records worldwide and their album was in a ton of end of year lists. This gives me total deja vu and I can't put my finger on who it sounds like which is doing my nut in.... Oh Crosby Stills & Nash and Neil Young. Brian reckons it's not unlike a more acoustic Arcade Fire. 'Mykonos' reminds me of stuff my dad used to play when I was a kid. 70's style dadrock with a most authentic sound. Dadrock is probably the most unfashionable genre going which is good with me. I'm a dad.
10/10 Chris Williams Customer review, 20th January 2009
Extraordinary, utterly extraordinary. Never heard of the band before (yes, I know, where have I been?..) but caught this song on the radio recently and it just knocked me out. Wonderfully seductive vocal harmonies that you can't help but sing along to, and, just when you feel it may become a bit too Crosby Still & Nash, then it's all change to a superb, electric, rhythmic ending, all the while retaining those fantastic vocals.
In these days of X Factor, mass produced pap, it restores your faith in music, in an old fashioned kind of way - hear a great song on the radio, makes you want to buy their album. I'm almost scared to do so, how can it possibly live up to the standard of this magnificent song?
When I first heard this I was convinced it was a Neil Young/Crosby, Stills, Nash & young cover. Really, what does it sound like?
