[mp3] Robin Pecknold – “Derwentwater Stones”

With a brand new Fleet Foxes record nearing release (Helplessness Blues, May 1, Sub Pop) no one could have expected Robin Pecknold to get all Radiohead on us and sneak attack a brand new 3-song EP, titled simply Three Songs, via his Twitter.  But he did, and the results are unsurprisingly gorgeous.  There’s a cover called “Where Is My Wild Rose” of New Zealand singer/songwriter Chris Thompson and a duet with Ed Droste from Grizzly Bear called “I’m Losing Myself”.  Then there’s a solo acoustic original “Derwentwater Stones”, which is my favorite of the three.  If you haven’t heard these yet, check that one below and get the others virtually anywhere on the internet.
