Turn me over, brothers, I am done enough on this side

Track of the Day: Fleet Foxes, Montezuma (BBC Maida Vale Session)

I prefer this version of the song even above the version on their album Helplessness Blues (if you use Spotify, you can use the link to go right to the album).  Maybe one part of my fondness for this song stems from the fact that I grew up in a town called Montezuma. Only part of it, though; for me it’s got that “perfect song” quality from any angle.  I particularly like the more minimal studio engineering polish on the Fleet Foxes songs from these sessions recorded at the BBC Maida Vale studios.
