Fleet Foxes. El mejor grupo folk de la década, a puntito de sacar album.

Pin It Ahora!
Ya queda menos!! venga!! vengaaaa...!!!
El segundo disco de Fleet Foxes tiene que estar ya al llegar!  Los barbudos trabajan en Seattle tras una increible gira mundial gracias a su aclamado album debut. Deberíamos estar ya cerca de anunciar el nacimiento de su segundo album, la espera me está matando...
"We're working on stuff every day," comentaba el guitarrista y uno de los cantantes, Robin Pecknold a Pitchfork. "We're done touring now until we're done with the next record. So now is when we're writing and starting to record the new album."

A pesar del éxito del primer album, Pecknold reveló que el nuevo trabajo irá en una nueva dirección;  "I listened to the first record again, and I was kind of nonplussed," explicaba. "Some of it I was into, or I could see why we did that at that time - but some of it we would just never do again."

Concretando y haciendo referencia a las nuevas canciones, Pecknold dijo que éstas serían "less poppy". Esperemos que no disten demasiado de las geniales He Doesn't Know Why o Mykonos.

"There are definitely super-upbeat songs that are being worked on for the new record. But as a whole, it's probably a little bit less upbeat," añadió. "When I was listening to it [their debut], I felt like I didn't get a chance to breathe. There was a lot of 'too upbeat'. I guess people think we're already kind of a mellow band, so maybe the next album will be pretty boring to most people."  Es decir, parece que será algo más personal, más esencia folk.


En cuanto a la fechas, señalaron a las postrimerías de éste 2010... "Definitely 2010. There's no way it wouldn't be next year. But probably the early second half, or mid-second half, stocking-stuffer style" comentaba Pecknold.

Sólo queda esperar y puede que al venir de vacaciones, cuando se marche el calor y venga la época de abrigo, Fleet Foxes nos volverá a deleitar con música para chimenea, de esa que tánto nos gusta. (By JRGE)
