Fleet Foxes – “The Plains/Bitter Dancer”

The Fleet Foxes album is still my favorite of the year, and I cannot stop listening to it. Robin Pecknold’s words just kill me. I realized the other day that he’s 25 years old (as am I) and a lot of his lyrics resonate with me at this time in my life. A few tunes on Helplessness Blues are two songs in one, and the way those particular tracks move and change is just captivating. Especially “The Plains/Bitter Dancer” which changes so dramatically and beautifully right as the most climactic lyric is first sung…

“At arm’s length…I will hold you there.”
