La La Blogothèque threw a party at the end of May and invited Fleet Foxes, the Dodos, Vandaveer, Essie Jaine, and Noah And The Whale to play. As that FF still suggests, it was a dark night, offering sharp contrast to the Foxes light-as-air melodies and the Dodos buoyant harmonies and “The Fools”‘s stick work. That said, some non-Foxes join-in on “White Winter Hymnal” and kinda fuck-up the crystalline harmonies, but that sort of things happens at parties, right? (Note: It’s different when the non-FF’s are Wilco or two Swedish girls.)
