TravelMarx Music Recommendations – Winter 2009

Fleet Foxes - Fleet Foxes Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavilion
Travelmarx recommendations for winter 2009 (now that’s we are officially in spring, right?) are releases from 2008. Figures. Travelmarx is always running behind schedule. Anyhow, the recommendations are: Animal Collective’s Merriweather Post Pavilion (listen to samples) and the Fleet Foxes’ eponymous debut Fleet Foxes (listen to samples). Honorable mention goes to Passion Pit’s Chunk of Change (listen to samples) – how could you not like the tracks Better Things and Sleepyhead (video on YouTube)?

What has gotten the most spins at Travelmarx headquarters? Fleet Foxes for sure. Love those harmonies. Check out the video to White Winter Hymnal. By the way, the cover art for the Fleet Foxes is the Pieter the Elder Brueghel (c. 1525 – 1569) painting Netherlandish Proverbs (1559).
