SUBPOP

Among the artists who divulged their favorites are THEESatisfaction, Robin Pecknold of Fleet Foxes, and Ishmael Butler of Shabazz Palaces. While Ishamel takes a slightly random approach and touches on everything from his favorite day of the year to his favorite view, Robin and THEESatisfaction stick to music and movies. Robin’s top-ten playlist on Spotify includes Kurt Vile, Portishead, and The Walkmen. The ladies of THEESatisfaction’s movie archive is robust with flicks like Whatever Happened to Baby Jane, The Nutty Professor, and Mary Poppins.

Pitchfork:
Because almost all of them sing, Fleet Foxes come across as a pretty democratic band. But still, lead bearded guy Robin Pecknold is the main guy. He’s made magazine covers; his beard is particularly robust. If any of the Fleet Foxes were to start a solo project, it would probably be him. While Pecknold doesn’t have any grand solo ambitions just yet, he did start a MySpace page all by his lonesome that currently features two new songs. (Via onethirtybpm.com) According to Fleet Foxes’ label, Sub Pop, Pecknold will use the space to post covers in the future.
