MP3: Fleet Foxes & Grizzly Bear Frontmen - "I'm Losing Myself"


What a lovely, unexpected surprise. With his band's forthcoming sophomore effort, Helplessness Blues, coming out in May, who would have thought Robin Pecknold had some extra solo stuff lying around as well? The Fleet Foxes frontman has released a free three song EP—thanks Twitter!—that he recorded with a friend in Los Angeles. They're all pretty “mellow jams,” as he's claimed, but the most noteworthy one has to be “I'm Losing Myself,” a duet with Grizzly Bear's Ed Droste. Probably like you'd imagine, these two vocalists sound absolutely exquisite together, with this subtle folk ballad consisting only of quiet acoustics and their softening crooning. Beautiful.
