Set List

  • "The Plains/ Bitter Dancer"
  • "Mykonos"
  • "Battery Kinzie"
  • "Sim Sala Bim"
  • "The Shrine/An Argument"
  • "Grown Ocean"
  • "Helplessness Blues"

This is the first radio session the members of Fleet Foxes performed in support of their sophomore album, Helplessness Blues, and I think we know why: Frankly, they're not morning people. The band let us know this by jokingly calling our show, Morning Becomes When It's Difficult To Sing Well. (Or something along those lines.)

Still, these guys turned out a gorgeous set of music, with their harmonies fully intact. The songs sounded even better live than on the album — especially "Grown Ocean," "Battery Kinzie" and our old favorite, "Mykonos."
