Terrible am I child, even if you don't mind

Fleet Foxes - A Take Away Show from La Blogotheque on Vimeo.

Listen to this amazing rendition of 'Blue Ridge Mountain' where the Fleet Foxes break into an abandoned Grand Palais and perform with such enthusiasm and care. They play in an enormous chamber-like room which makes their already echoey, perfect harmonies even more echoey, perfect and filled with mythicism and passion. 

In the quivering forest,
Where the shivering dogs rest,
Our good grandfather,
Built a wooden nest.
And the river got frozen,
And the home got snowed in,
And the yellow moon glowed bright,
In the morning light.

Terrible am I child,
Even if you don't mind.

This is my favourite song from Fleet Foxes' self-titled LP of this year.

Great blog, and thank you for the comment!
You're one of the few other Brisbane people I've come across lately :)
