Matt Mitchell’s description of Fleet Foxes' music is right on:

Pecknold’s early compositions and stacked vocal harmonies mirrored Phil Spector’s Wall of Sound technique, just as Brian Wilson’s Pet Sounds and SMILE compositions had previously; his lyrics captured the symbiotic relationship between cinematic heartbreak and autumnal folklore unearthed from the quixotic Pacific Northwest landscape he was raised in.

Mitchell reviews Robin Pecknold’s recently released performance of several Fleet Foxes tracks, A Very Lonely Solstice.
