Listen: Fleet Foxes' "Crack-Up"

If you were to ask me to name two of my favourite bands, I wouldn't hesitate in the slightest bit to say Beach House and Fleet Foxes. It's as if they are the eyes and ears through which I experience music that's not only serene and tranquil, but also complex and profoundly affecting. Fleet Foxes' latest sprawling effort Crack-Up is no exception. It's a triumphant return, an experimental folk outing at that, but no less contemplative and rewarding, characterised by pretty orchestration and the band's trademark choral harmonies.
