See Fleet Foxes in the Studio and on Tour


If Seattle six-piece Fleet Foxes’ pastoral folk tunes don’t already make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, well, their new video certainly will.

Their homespun clip for “Grown Ocean” off their May 3 release Helplessness Blues — a SPIN must-hear album for 2011 — is like a picture book of the band’s fondest memories. Color-tinted lo-fi footage (think the Hipstamatic iPhone photo app) captures the guys — and their friends and family — in the studio and on tour. It’s all snow-capped mountains, lakes, forests, romps in the summer grass, and lots and lots of laughs and smiles.

Ahhh… memories.
