Fleet Foxes Performs For ‘From The Basement’ In 2008: Pro-Shot Video


Fleet Foxes‘ full 2008 appearance on the short-lived From The Basement live music internet/television show, which was co-produced by Nigel Godrich, has surfaced on YouTube. The band featured Josh Tillman on drums at the time, who would go on to launch a successful career of his own as Father John Misty.

The 26-minute Fleet Foxes video is the latest to appear on the show’s YouTube channel. A bevy of performances from the From The Basement archives have been uploaded over the past two weeks including sets from Radiohead, Queens of the Stone Age and PJ Harvey.

Fleet Foxes, led by Robin Pecknold, performed songs from their 2008 releases for From The Basement. Pecknold and company worked the title track from their Sun Giant EP into “Sun It Rises” from the band’s self-titled LP and ended the opening medley with “Drops In The River” off Sun Giant. Next, the group performed Sun Giant track “English House” before ending the set with “Blue Ridge Mountain” and “Your Protector” off Fleet Foxes.
