48. Fleet Foxes - English House (2008)

Unlike most heavily-hyped bands over the last few years, Fleet Foxes deserved every bit of praise they received in 2008 and so much more. Honestly, it really doesn't sound to me like there's any way that this music was created during a time that I was even alive. Actually, I really can't even figure out when this music was made. It seems to have come out of some alternate dimension where everyone speaks in harmonies.....and it's beautiful. Even if this band is unable to top the music they've made so far for the rest of their career, the Sun Giant EP and the self-titled album that followed are enough to insure that Fleet Foxes will be spoken of in reverent tones for many many years to come.
