EAR CANDY | [MP3] Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold Gives Away Three New Songs

Robin Pecknold, the primary voice of Fleet Foxes, took to twitter about an hour ago to give away 3 new tracks that he recorded a couple weeks ago in LA: “Where Is My Wild Rose,” “Derwentwater Stones,” and “I’m Losing Myself” (feat. Ed Droste of Grizzly Bear).

He made sure to say that they are not Fleet Fox tracks, so don’t expect glorious layered harmonies. The songs are mellow and simple voice and guitars, but they are just as warm and welcoming, and like @mintonmk tweeted, sound like “classic British folk on vinyl.”

[MP3] EAR CANDY | Heidi Spencer & The Rare Birds – “Alibi”

[MP3]: Heidi Spencer & The Rare Birds – “Alibi” (right-click, save as)

“No one needs to know we laid around all day.”

All day, every day, that’s pretty much my theory. And if your first thought when seeing her name was Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt (from The Hills), you weren’t alone. If not, I should cut back on my celebrity gossip. MTV is terrible.

“Alibi” is a nice, simple, mellow song I came across and thought I’d share. Sometimes it’s nice when things aren’t too complicated; sometimes you need that. (Also, I like how you can hear a single finger-snap on some beats.) It’s the first single off Milwaukee’s Heidi Spencer & the Rare Birds‘ album, Under Streetlight Glow (due out March 27 via Bella Union). Hope you enjoy!
