Fleet Foxes Share “Icicle Tusk” from Fist Collection 2006-2009 Special Edition, out November 9th

Ahead of Fleet Foxes’ forthcoming special limited-edition First Collection 2006 – 2009 release on November 9, the band shares its song “Icicle Tusk,” which was originally released on the self-released The Fleet Foxes EP in April 2006 in an extremely limited quantity of fewer than 200 copies.

The EP was the band’s initial collaboration with longtime Seattle–based producing partner Phil Ek. It was a grassroots endeavor for frontman Robin Pecknold and his family, who helped burn and hand-screen the copies on CD. They then delivered the EPs around town to influential record stores and venue bookers, as well as acclaimed independent radio station KEXP, where the morning show host John Richards told Billboard, “Anything this catchy, well-written and -played, deserves to be put on the radio immediately.” The Seattle Times reviewed an early show, noting, “Pecknold’s alluring, unpretentious singing and a sound — anchored by guitarist Skye Skjelset — that echoes ’60s psychedelic pop alternately charmed and dazzled a robust crowd.” The First Collection 2006 – 2009 special edition is the first time this music has been available on 10” vinyl.

First Collection 2006 – 2009 features content spanning the early days of Fleet Foxes’ career, including the self-titled full-length debut album on 12” vinyl, as well as the Sun Giant EP on 10” vinyl and the first vinyl releases of both the very limited-edition, previously only self-released The Fleet Foxes EP on 10” and B-sides & Rarities on 10”. See full tracklisting below.  In addition to its musical offerings, the release features a thirty-two-page booklet including show flyers, lyrics, and artwork from the period. The special edition will also be released on CD and on all digital platforms. Pre-order the collection from our Megamart today.

Fleet Foxes’ debut album made a tremendous impact on the international musical scene, topping numerous “best of” lists, including Rolling Stone’s 100 Best Albums of the 2000’s and Pitchfork’s 50 Best Albums of 2008, and earned the band Uncut’s inaugural Music Award Prize. Fleet Foxes is certified Gold in North America and Platinum in both the UK and Australia.

Here’s a statement from Robin Pecknold on this upcoming release: “Over the years many people have asked if we’d ever release our original demo EP in any form, or if the Sun Giant EP would ever have its own vinyl sleeve, or they would ask why the font on the cover of the Fleet Foxes LP was so large, or they would ask if there were any other recordings, b-sides or rarities from that time period, or if there were 32 pages worth of old photos and ephemera that they could take a look at, and they would often ask if all of these things could be packaged together, as a First Collection, four pieces of 12” and 10” vinyl, fresh pressings in freshly designed sleeves, packaged together in a beautiful duo-tone bookcloth box with a magnetic clasp hinge: to the thousands of you who have asked for this very weirdly specific thing, it comes out November 9th (with CD / Digital versions available as well), thanks for the good idea.
