The cre­ative main­stay of Fleet Foxes, Robin Pec­knold, has re­cently emerged from self-im­posed ex­ile from the mu­sic in­dus­try (shortly after Fleet Foxes’ 2011 al­bum, Help­less­ness Blues, he re­lo­cated from his base in the Pa­cific North­west to New York City, where he stud­ied at Columbia Univer­sity, ma­jor­ing in English). Clearly, time spent in the real world has been good for his sys­tem – the ti­tle of the band’s new al­bum, Crack-Up, di­rectly ref­er­ences the rea­sons why he de­cided to walk away for a few years – as there seems to be a re­newed sense of vigour in the way Pec­knold wields his pen these days. Please note Fleet Foxes play a fur­ther gig at Dublin’s Iveagh Gar­dens on Fri­day July 14th (sold out).
