Music: Fool’s Errand, by Fleet Foxes

Fleet Foxes’ long-awaited new album, “Crack-Up” is set for release June 16 but they have already released “Third of May / Ōdaigahara” and “Fool’s Errand”.

I’ve been looking forward to this release because this is a band I’ve come to appreciate more and more with time, and because they stopped making music at what many considered to be the height of their popularity.

“Third of May / Ōdaigahara” and “Fool’s Errand” seemingly pick up where Fleet Foxes left off over five years ago.

Specifically, “Fools Errand” delivers a loud, layered piece that is worth listening to over and over again, and the video resumes Fleet Foxes’ habit of creating what I consider to be visually captivating interpretive work.

There is familiarity here, accompanied by newness and depth worth discovering slowly and methodically.
