Fleet Foxes

The abundance of similarly named bands has our heads spinning. We help you sort them out. In this edition: Fleet Foxes vs. Foxes in Fiction.

Fleet Foxes
Who They Are: A Seattle sextet led by Robin Pecknold known for their soaring vocal harmonies and throwback musicianship

The Essentials: “Mykonos” (from 2008’s Sun Giant EP); “White Winter Hymnal” (from their 2008 self-titled full-length); “Helplessness Blues” (the gloriously disjointed title track from their new record, which sounds like two clone armies — one side all Simons; the other, all Garfunkels — battling it out)

Foxes in Fiction

Foxes in Fiction
Who They Are: Toronto’s Warren Hildebrand, who has been releasing home-recorded, dreamy, electronic-tinged pop songs — which sound like ambient remixes of the Twin Peaks soundtrack — under the Foxes name since he was 15 years old

The Essentials: “Flashing Lights Have Ended Now” and “Snow Angels” (both from 2010’s Swung from the Branches); and Hildebrand’s recent instrumental Static Cults EP
