#23. Fleet Foxes   White Winter Hymnal One does “White Winter Hymnal” around this time of the year. The gorgeous, soothing harmonies brought on so smoothly by Fleet Foxes are welcome distraction in this fast-paced musical era controlled by electronic music.

This song, however, does not remind me of winter at all. I see life sprout from the melting snow in the Springtime, whenever I unintentionally leave “White Winter Hymnal” on repeat for 45 minutes (it’s easier than you would think). The lyrics embedded between the heavenly chants of Fleet Foxes are often the center of discussion, but as dark the lyrics are, you can’t help but feel that everything is going to be just fine.
