In the grand tradition of BBC Radio One premieres, Zane Lowe dropped another track off Fleet Foxes forthcoming Hopelessness Blues. "Battery Kinzie" reinforces our suspicions that yes, this record will sound a lot like Fleet Foxes have always sounded; pastoral and floaty and mountain-y.
Robert Pecknold has also announced the band is auctioning off a test pressing of the record, with all proceeds going to benefit the Japan Earthquake Relief Fund. The record doesn't come out for real until 5/3, so the winner may very well be the first outside the Foxes camp to hear it in its entirety. Bid on it over at Ebay.
