Seattle based indie-folk band, Fleet Foxes, initially rose to popularity in late 2007 after gaining thousands of plays and hits on their Myspace page. They soon caught the attention of indie label Sub Pop, and were signed shortly there after. In the summer of 2008, they released their first studio album, the self-titled Fleet Foxes. The album is considered somewhat of a masterpiece, as many magazines named it one of the best of the decade. Not everyone is into slower, folky, music though, but if you are, Fleet Foxes is definitely one to check out, starting with White Winter Hymnal.
