ooh! u a friend was also telling me about Fleet Foxes.
Then have u checked Noah and The Whale, as well as Herman Dune?

Good stuff!
I never tot you be into Anthony & the Johnsons. I really like that photo on their latest album cover. Did u know that Kazuo Ohno was Anthony's adoptive mother... no, i mean, father. Mother. Father...

i heard that on 99.5.
Or was it in Life! ?

I've not checked out Noah and The Whale or Herman Dune. Hmmm, somehow, Herman reminds me of Herman Melville which leads to Moby Dick which leads to whale...

The cover features an extraordinary portrait of Kazuo Ohno, the 102-year-old founder of butoh – a Japanese dance form concerned with surreal metamorphoses – whom Hegarty refers to as ‘kind of like my art parent’.

- I think Juice Magazine March 2009 confused everyone when his quote as seen above was taken out of context.
