[VIDEO] Robin Pecknold covers Radiohead at age 17

I was poking around Youtube for a super secret project that you can probably guess, when I found this video of a 17-year-old Robin Pecknold covering Radiohead’s “Let Down” with his friend Aaron Mannino. This is for sure Robin because the current Fleet Fox himself commented on the video. It’s great to get a look at the beginnings of one of the best bands out there, but also crazy to think that the next superstar is probably posting dozens of youtube videos of himself playing Fleet Foxes covers at this very moment!

  1. Bret: thanks. But really since every site that linked to me posted the video as well, I got about 400 combined hits from Pitchfork, Stereogum and AtEase.
