Fleet Foxes - Shore

About Shore by Fleet Foxes Album

On September 22, Fleet Foxes released their fourth studio album Shore at 6:31 am PT/9:31 am ET to coincide exactly with the Autumnal Equinox. The bright and hopeful album, released via Anti-. Shore was recorded before and during quarantine in Hudson (NY), Paris, Los Angeles, Long Island City and New York City from September 2018 until September 2020 with the help of recording and production engineer Beatriz Artola.The fifteen song, fifty-five minute Shore was initially inspired by frontman Robin Pecknold’s musical heroes such as Arthur Russell, Nina Simone, Sam Cooke, Emahoy Tsegué-Maryam Guebrou and more who, in his experience, celebrated life in the face of death. “I see “shore” as a place of safety on the edge of something uncertain, staring at Whitman’s waves reciting ‘death,’” commented Pecknold. “Tempted by the adventure of the unknown at the same time you are relishing the comfort of the stable ground beneath you. This was the mindset I found, the fuel I found, for making this album.” Pecknold continues: Since the unexpected success of the first Fleet Foxes album over a decade ago, I have spent more time than I’m happy to admit in a state of constant worry and anxiety. Worried about what I should make, how it will be received, worried about the moves of other artists, my place amongst them, worried about my singing voice and mental health on long tours. I’ve never let myself enjoy this process as much as I could, or as much as I should. I’ve been so lucky in so many ways in my life, so lucky to be born with the seeds of the talents I have cultivated and lucky to have had so many unreal experiences. Maybe with luck can come guilt sometimes. I know I’ve welcomed hardship wherever I could find it, real or imagined, as a way of subconsciously tempering all this unreal luck I’ve had. By February 2020, I was again consumed with worry and anxiety over this album and how I would finish it. But since March, with a pandemic spiraling out of control, living in a failed state, watching and participating in a rash of protests and marches against systemic injustice, most of my anxiety around the album disappeared. It just came to seem so small in comparison to what we were all experiencing together. In its place came a gratitude, a joy at having the time and resources to devote to making sound, and a different perspective on how important or not this music was in the grand scheme of things. Music is both the most inessential and the most essential thing. We don’t need music to live, but I couldn’t imagine life without it. It became a great gift to no longer carry any worry or anxiety around the album, in light of everything that is going on. A tour may not happen for a year, music careers may not be what they once were. So it may be, but music remains essential. This reframing was another stroke of unexpected luck I have been the undeserving recipient of. I was able to take the wheel completely and see the album through much better than I had imagined it, with help from so many incredible collaborators, safe and lucky in a new frame of mind.

- Washed Up on a Shore2 star

If you want an album that you can put on and just ignore... then this is the one for you! I was excited to hear that the Fleet Foxes were releasing a surprise new album, but it was clear from the first few tracks, that this was going to be in a similar vein as "Crack-Up," in that it's an album that has some interesting changes and effects, but effects do not make a good record. The record often plays as if Robin Pecknold had some ideas for songs and then decided to take them nowhere... the first 7 tracks play as if it was a requiem... just a drony string of nothing that leaves the listener with an ambient feeling. Then there's the lyrics, that don't really say much and are often drowned out by over-production. For me, the album didn't even get interesting until you get to "Maestranza" and "Young Man's Game," because you can finally hear a hook every now and then and make out what Robin is singing... but sadly, I'm not going to be picking up this record to listen to these tracks any time soon. So, in the end, this record is ultimately forgettable... if I had to listen to this in concert, I'd probably fall asleep or get up and leave. Void of a heart and soul, "Washed up on a Shore."

- Wonderful5 star

First 10 songs are great, last 5 not so much. Batting .666, not many records pull that off. However, this band has a way with time, songs that didn't move me early on a listen tend to grab me later. I won't give up on them.

- Me or Them?5 star

Having been up to now barely a semi-fan I find this new album gorgeous with a clarity and energy their earlier works lacked. Yay Seattle bands!

- lazy and boring1 star

FF have always tried to compete with the like of My Morning Jacket and Band of Horses but never quite rose to the challenge. Ragged Wood and Mykanos are the 2 hit wonders they did, everything else is poop.

- Great!5 star

Every song

- Sweet relief5 star

Loving the calm cleanliness of this album. It’s been really good to listen to while I walk.

- So good I cried5 star

Such a beautiful album. Every song is a jem.

- Beautfully written, crafted and performed!5 star

I only discovered Fleet Foxes about a year and half ago (hat's off to lead singer of Greta Van Fleet Josh for that tip). I immediately fell in love with their sound - the instrumentation and vocals and other-wordly but solidy cool sound hooked me in from the start. I immediately bought all their albums including Crack Up. I have waited patiently for most of this year for their new album (hey - during Corona time what else I have got to) and I am not disappointed. This is a stellar album both similar and different to their previous work. The lead singer's voice is angelic and perfect for the songs. It is almost a solid hour of terrific music - a soothing balm in these challenging times. Buy it, listen to it, and love it...over and over again...

- It shore is good!5 star

Super awesome music, luv it

- Escapist4 star

A soundtrack to escape into. Refreshing, powerful music. So far, I prefer the first half of the album, but can see other tracks growing on me with repeat listens.

- Album of the Year5 star

This is a stunningly beautiful album of great songs, perfectly sung and arranged. Hopeful music needed for these times.

- Perfection5 star

A true work of art, an absolute masterpiece. Robin showing once again that there are levels to this. There may be many great painters, but few Rembrandt’s, Picasso’s, or Van Gogh’s. Fleet Foxes are one of the few, and they’ve created a true work of art with Shore, a perfect follow up to Crack-Up, both in spirit and in content.

- Love it5 star

Shore is a fantastic album

- Prettiest music of 2020.5 star

I needed this.

- Not their best😐1 star

I was so excited for a new album. The songs are just blah. They are almost Cold Play like

- Perfect timing5 star

If you want to escape into a dreamy, meditative state and not think about all of the negative going on in the world today - listen to this album. There are tracks that’ll make you feel upbeat, then there are tracks that you can’t help but unwind to when listening. This album is wonderful from start to finish and is the perfect soundtrack to a crisp autumn day or cozy evening in. Thank you Fleet Foxes!! Going to be listening to this A LOT!

- Simply amazing-Thank you, Robin5 star

Great album

- Beautiful5 star

Robin Pecknold comes out with a beautiful body of music that everybody needs right now. It’s like a musical dream simply put. The music and lyrics are well thought out and produced.

- 2020 needed this5 star

Heal Each Other, and Heal Yourself

- 🔥5 star

Harmonizing at its finest

- Sweet5 star

An uplifting yet mellow vibe! In other words it’s perfect Indie! I heard 30 seconds of one preview and purchased the album. Read the iTunes review it’s has a complete artist explanation of each song. This adds value to listening!

- As Always5 star

Perfect album for the times. Fleet Foxes are such a great band and find a way into your heart and soul with their layered sound of beautiful sound scapes. Thank you!!

- Promising.4 star

This one's gonna be a grower for me. It seem's promising though. It seems complex. After a couple listens through so far, the one that stands out to me is A Long Way Past The Past, which seems like a nice driving song, majestic and flowing. (a sound the whole album seems have)

- Stunning5 star

These guys have true talent for their genre of music. I am someone who pays deep attention to music and I love how they include many sounds (loud and quiet) in their tracks. Well done as usual.

- They’re back at just the right time.5 star

They’re back releasing music at the greatest time of year. The onset of fall. It could not be more appropriate or meaningful.

- Incredibly Transcending5 star

I never thought they Helplessness Blues could be topped...but Shore may just be their best work to date.

I utterly adored Crack-Up and didn’t think Pecknold could ever top it, but somehow, he has. What a gift of light and warmth in a dark year. Thanks, Fleet Foxes.

A perfect counter part to Crack Up. Progression at its fine - an album to cherish.

Tommymcninja - What an album5 star

This seemed to come out of nowhere and has had a big impact, for me and countless others. I’ve always been a fan but something about this LP is particularly special. This year has been so hard, but these songs have such a joyously life-affirming presence...just a truly wonderful, wonderful record. Best yet.

nealeyguitars - Sublime5 star

just totally sublime.

collybogs - Disappointing3 star

Read all the rave reviews, listened to it a few times now and still Don’t get it. To be honest unlike other albums by these guys this one just bores the life out of me. For one thing it’s overly long with too many filler tracks. It’s just too poppy for me , reminding too much of other bands. It’s as though they have lost their identity, lost what made them good in the first place.

CUT SWIFT MASTER - Back to what they do best5 star

Totally agree with what foxy said,you have to listen a few times and you will absolutely love it,this is fleet foxes back to there best ,dreamy floating singing over great guitar melodies,the last two albums had very little to give for me but this is as good as the first two albums they done.

Foxy 1968 - Return to form for The Foxes5 star

Wow, they are back and a fabulous new album for our listening. Beautiful and thoughtful music as ever and a slight departure of style and direction....very welcome and a more modern sound for the Foxes. Look, like every good album it’s a grower, listen to it 5 times before making a judgement and I’m sure you will love it !

Shore Wiki

A shore or a shoreline is the fringe of land at the edge of a large body of water, such as an ocean, sea, or lake. In physical oceanography, a shore is the wider fringe that is geologically modified by the action of the body of water past and present, while the beach is at the edge of the shore, representing the intertidal zone where there is one. In contrast to a coast, a shore can border any body of water, while the coast must border an ocean; in that sense a coast is a type of shore; however, coast often refers to an area far wider than the shore, often stretching miles into the interior. Shores are influenced by the topography of the surrounding landscape, as well as by water induced erosion, such as waves. The geological composition of rock and soil dictates the type of shore which is created.
