Fleet Foxes + The Cave Singers

Recommended
Seattle's Fleet Foxes are easy targets, with their milky CSNY sound and wild popularity—the group's recent second album, Helplessness Blues, landed its singer's beard on the cover of Spin. But the band rises above its genre (wimpy, rootsy, beardsy West Coast indie rock?) with haunting leads from singer Robin Pecknold. Opening is fellow Seattle group Cave Singers, featuring Pete Quirk, whose peculiar, reedy voice protrudes from his band's instrumentation like an ostrich's head.
