Seattle's Fleet Foxes' earthy, harmony-rich sound is fashioned after such perennial '60s artists as Bob Dylan, Neil Young, the Zombies, and the Beach Boys. Mixing Baroque pop with elements of classic rock and British folk, the band took shape in 2006. After playing only a handful of shows, Fleet Foxes generated a healthy amount of label interest and caught the attention of local producer Phil Ek, who had previously helmed records by Built to Spill and the Shins. Ek worked with the band on its Sun Giant EP, which was issued by Sub Pop Records in spring 2008. The band's self-titled debut full-length followed that summer. ~ Kenyon Hopkin & Andrew Leahey
