the Fleet Foxes covers archive :: 18 covers and counting!

With the Fleet Foxes’ Helplessness Blues on the horizon, I figured now would be an excellent time to put this into the world. Here are all the Fleet Foxes covers I could in my first sweep through the internet. Some of these are Robin solo, some are from his solo project White Antelope, but I decided to label them all as “Fleet Foxes” to save myself a headache. Maybe I should have gone with the “Robin Pecknold covers archive,” but chances are you wouldn’t have found it then.

UPDATE: Added a cover of BOAT’s “Clogged Castle.”

[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!
