Every music nerd has an album or set of albums that they can credit for forever changing their listening habits. Many post-indie twenty-somethings — myself included — can attribute the birth of their musical consciousness to a small handful of albums, frequently, with Fleet Foxes’ self-titled record on that list.
To celebrate the album’s ten-year anniversary — shit, right? — the Fleet Foxes have released an impressive compilation that includes the album, the Sun Giant EP, b-sides and previously unreleased tunes. With 30 songs, the album clocks in at just under an hour and forty-five minutes. First Collection will allow you to revisit some of the most iconic folk-indie music of the previous decade.
