An amalgamation of folk-gospel, soft-rock and Brit-pop, the band's retro stylings fall somewhere among the likes of America and Iron & Wine.
'Blue Ridge Mountains,' a track from the group's self-titled June release, builds from acoustic strummings and subtle vocal harmonies into a full-fledged piano rocker.
The band makes such a convincing argument here for Southern-fried folk-rock, it would be hard to peg Fleet Foxes as a Sub Pop act from Seattle.
