Identical in many ways to the original Fleet Foxes - Fleet Foxes 2008 release. However, a few packaging differences of note:
1. This copy has plastic sleeves for the records, whereas the original 2008 has paper.
2. Additionally, the spines are slightly different: The "Sub Pop" label at the top is smaller on this release than the original, "Fleet Foxes" is better centered in the middle, and "SP 777" is all the way at the bottom (the 2008 release has a cpl inches between the "SP 777" and the bottom).

Fleet Foxes (LP):
Recorded at our homes, our friends' homes, our parents' homes, at London Bridge Studio, and at Avast Studio in Seattle, Washington, through the Summer and Fall of 2007. Phil Ek produced, engineered, and mixed, except when we were flailing around at home, recording ourselves poorly for him to clean up later. This happened often. [...] Mastered, at RFI in Seattle.

Sun Giant (EP):
We all played many an instrument. An itemized and individualized list would be egotistical and tiresome.
It was mostly recorded in early January of 2008 at Bear Creek Studios in Woodinville, Washington. We did additional recording at both our house and at Stuart Hollerman's Avast! Studio, where the EP was also mixed. The handsome Philip M. Ek was the producer, engineer, and mixer. All hate mail may be directed to him. Except mastering hate mail, which can be sent to Ed Brooks at RFI in Seattle, WA.

    Of all the folk rock from the 10s, especially the early 10s, this album stands out as an earnest attempt at searching for a modern folk sound. Not only is that achieved here, it is achieved with an expert balance of grandiose production and colorful, masterfully executed melodies.

      This pressing is fantastic. The sound is very dynamic and has a nice warmth to it. My copy had no crazy discernable surface noise, but I gave it a good wipe. Maybe I would recommend the same for those on their first lesson. The Sun Giant EP really adds to the package, because Mykonos is just an incredible tune. The cherry on top its the Tip-On jacket for this release, which I'm a huge fan of.
      Tip - On Jackets are not used nearly enough.

      Note: My copy did not come with a download card.

        Beautiful music and amazing pressing! Sounds great in its vinyl version. Nice gatefold sleeve with great artwork. And it comes with Sun Giant EP included (Mykonos is such a great song). Highly recommended.

          Nice pressing. Well worth the purchase. The vinyl is not 100% silent. In some quieter parts maybe there is a bit of background noise, but it shouldn´t be enough to disturb. I send back any new vinyl that isn´t perfect or close to perfect. This album I am going to keep. Dynamic sound. Clean vinyl.

            Does anybody else receive an incredibly noisy pressing??? Both the EP and main album are just full of noise!! Is it just mine?
