He is… his daughter’s father.

I spent a long time trying to find a photo to match the song I had selected for today. I eventually decided on this one because the band, Fleet Foxes, often use incredible and layered vocal harmonies… they’re almost choral-like. As well, there’s this reverb quality to their sound almost as if they record in an empty cathedral.

This week I was a very proud daughter. My dad was visiting for a couple days and we spent some time in HMV. He asked me what he would like and I suggested Mumford & Sons. After spending a good fifteen minutes going through the album at a listening station (even though there was a sign that strictly indicated the limit was 10 minutes- my dad, the rebel) dad and Marcus Mumford were getting along famously. “Sigh No More,” Mumford’s album, was a part of a 2 for $20 deal, so we had to go hunting again. Playing it safe, I suggested Adele’s “19.” Dad had other plans. After going around to numerous listening stations, he came back with Fleet Foxes’ debut album- my dad, the indie-rocker. We should have hit up Urban Outfitters after that.

Here is the title track off of Fleet Foxes’ sophomore  album released last month: 

Helplessness Blues by Fleet Foxes

And just so you can try to be as cool as my dad, here’s a track from the CD he is now listening to:
