Fleet Foxes

6am Repeat is a recurring feature here at Folk Hive in which we stream the latest track that plays incessantly in the earbuds when we awake at that hour and imbibe massive amounts of coffee and cigarettes in preparation for the advancing day.  Consider it your jam of the day — a sweet, sweet gift from me to you.  I love you, dude.

Every good folkie knows that Fleet Foxes have an album due.  Even bigger and better folkies know it’s titled Helplessness Blues and that it’s due out May 3rd.  Hardcore folk masters will recognize that this morning’s jam is both lovely and backed by the voice of Robin Pecknold.  FOLKIES UNITE!
