Wintersongs, Pt. II

If there is one band that will forever be tied to living in North County San Diego, it’s Fleet Foxes. Even though they're from Seattle, their debut album Fleet Foxes was released in 2008, the year of our relocation. With warm and wistful Beach Boys-like harmonies, White Winter Hymnal is a remarkably beautiful and short, succinct song that sounds like little else that was in heavy rotation on the airwaves during that time.

Fleet Foxes – White Winter Hymnal
I was following the pack all swallowed in their coats
With scarves of red tied 'round their throats
To keep their little heads
From falling in the snow
And I turned 'round and there you go
And Michael, you would fall
And turn the white snow red as strawberries in the summertime
