Released April 4, 2008. Sun Giant Tracklist. About Sun Giant . Looking back on 2008, one of the year’s biggest stories in indie rock was the sudden rise of Seattle’s Fleet Foxes and the mainstream attention they have received for their self-described baroque harmonic pop jams. Receiving a vast amount of that attention through their critically acclaimed debut LP, it’s not a surprise that it seems to have largely overshadowed their preceding Sun Giant EP. Matching the band’s LP in style and, generally, in quality, this EP is basically a mini Fleet Foxes

Fleet Foxes feel like they're singing to, and for, themselves on the EP, particularly on the title track, which lingers on their harmonies before drifting off on an acoustic guitar melody. Even on "Drops in the River," which builds from similarly simple beginnings to big drums and plugged-in guitars, the gentle beauty of the Foxes' melodies remains the same. From "English House"'s sparkling autoharps to the dreamy, soft rock-tinged "Mykonos," Sun Giant plays like it was culled from a backpacker's travel journal

The Sun Giant EP- sold on tour and digitally through Sub Pop, with a proper release forthcoming- contains familiar sounds, but Fleet Foxes make something new and special with them, following their own musical whims as closely as they follow tradition. These five songs- modest but never spare, atmospheric but never as an end in itself- change shape constantly, taking in elements of classic rock, church music, old-timey folk, and soundtrack flourishes

Album · 2008 · 5 Songs. Seattle’s Fleet Foxes bridge two genres: the baroque, organic pop of artists like Grizzly Bear and Beirut, and the gentle, ethereal folk of artists like the Cave Singers and Castanets. Their atmospheric, delicate music evokes rays of sun pouring into an empty church window, vaulted ceilings giving space to tightly focused, reverb-cloaked harmonies, and sky bound notes of cellos, pianos, dulcimers, and guitars

Innocent Son The Sun Giant EP is our first release with the really very wonderful, baroque harmonic pop combo Fleet Foxes. Their names are Skye, Robin, Joshua, Casey, and Christian and they live here in Seattle, Wash. We will be releasing a longer-length (some might even say full-length ) recording of theirs on June the 3rd, 2008. This forthcoming recording will, in all likelihood, bear the same name as the band, and by that we mean Fleet Foxes
