[Listen] Robin Pecknold Live Bootlegs

By Will Oliver, August 18th 2010 — with 14 comments Live Bootleg MP3

I found a set of bootlegs from Robin Pecknold’s (Lead singer of Fleet Foxes people!!!) opening set for Joanna Newsome at Seattle’s The Moore Theater on August 4th. He played a whole set of new songs that may or may not be for Fleet Foxes.

I picked out a few of my favorites to share with you guys. They are quite good. If these are songs for Fleet Foxes LP2, then it’s going to be quite a follow up. (I think “Blue Spotted Tail” & “Helplessness Blues” will be Fleet Foxes songs). Some of these songs have made the rounds as live video’s but you may have missed them.

Robin is absolutely flawless live. Damn.

[mp3]: Robin Pecknold – Blue Spotted Tail Lorelai (Live At The Moore Theater) (Someone in the comments gave me the heads up that the song is actually called Lorelai.
[mp3]: Robin Pecknold – Helplessness Blues (Live At The Moore Theater)
[mp3]: Robin Pecknold – Look Up, Look Down That Lonesome Road (Live At The Moore Theater)

Here is a Fleet Foxes goody that he performed as well:

[mp3]: Robin Pecknold – Tiger Mountain Peasant Song (Live At The Moore Theater)

    Where did you find the bootleg? These songs sound great!

  • jack

    “blue spotted tail” you have here isnt blue spotted tail, its a different new fleet foxes song

  • The “Blue Spotted Tail” is called actually “Lorelai”.

  • Will

    Oh wow thats what they had listed it as. Thanks for the heads up guys!

  • Jack

    “Look Up, Look Down That Lonesome Road” is a cover of a John Jacob Niles song (which is itself a traditional folk tune).

  • nwmn

    if these are fleet foxes songs, i can’t wait to hear them with the rest of the band. just imagine those harmonies.

    i think “Look Up, Look Down That Lonesome Road” is a traditional song. of course robin does it in his own awesome way. 🙂
