Wednesday Song Break: Fleet Foxes

The new Fleet Foxes album came out yesterday, and before I devote an entire #musicmonday post to it, I want to share a song with you to set the mood. Be warned, this is an 8-minute long piece, so grab your headphones and settle down for while you revel in this lengthy musical treat. After the 2-minute long intro, pay attention to minute marker 2:17. This is the kind of transition I live for, not to mention the chord progression is so invigorating it makes me want to climb mountains. The remainder veers into melancholy territory with a frantic jazz horn section juxtaposed on top of it. Great stuff.
