A Little Scandanavian Live Music Gift to Fleet Foxes

I just got done watching something kinda interesting and it’s kinda live music so I thought I would share. Plus I got the link from my music blog crush (aka Carrie Brownstein’s fantastic Monitor Mix blog).

Two young Swedes go into the woods and record a cover of “Tiger Mountain Peasant Song” by Fleet Foxes. Thus proving, yet again, that Scandinavia is a magical place to which the rest of us cannot relate.

Here’s the version I saw just a month ago at The Independent.

I remember getting chills. This is absolutely one of my favorite Fleet Foxes songs. Even if they fail to impress all the time, I just got completely blindsided by how much I enjoy this band. Their music just really infects me and makes me feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside.
