Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold likes file-sharing just fine

BBC:

“That was how I discovered almost everything when I was a teenager – my dad brought home a modem,” he said.

“That was how I was exposed to almost all of the music that I love to this day, and still that’s the easiest way to find really obscure stuff.

“I’ve discovered so much music through that medium. That will be true of any artist my age, absolutely.”

I realize a large percentage of artists feel similarly; I just really think Robin Pecknold is tops.

    The day my dad brought home a modem the only music files available for download were midi, mod, and x3m.

    And for the record, there are artists who dont feel that way. That is all.

    @2, did Joel ever say “I realize 100% of artists feel similarly?” No, he said “a large percentage,” which pretty much covers the fact that “there are artists who don’t feel that way.”

    @3, I’ve never really thought that FF and MMJ sounded particularly similar… If I was to accuse them of ganking anyone’s sound, I’d argue fellow Sub-Popper Iron & Wine. Or, you know, ‘folk music.’

    I love file-sharing but as a side note wanted to add: I’m sure fleet foxes do. They stole their style of My Morning Jacket.
