Released exactly at the autumnal equinox on September 22, 2020, 'Shore' - the ambitious release by Robin Pecknold under the guise of his Seattle band Fleet Foxes - is a sonically adventurous journey through the musical heroes and influences that shaped him. This week's guest Tom Lawery guides us in unpacking this brightly dense album that “celebrates life in the face of death”

I am NOT a musician, producer, published author or rock critic, blogger, influencer, podcaster or anything of real note. This gives me the perspective of listening for the feel and soul of the recording as I’m too ignorant to really pick apart a song. I am a passionate lover of music in most forms and enjoy exploring like the show . I revel in finding new musicians on the rise, missed bands of the past, sublime albums from bands that could / would never make it big and calling out bad albums from those that have made it big. I am a lover of live music , have seen thousands of shows, still go to music festivals and encourage all to see ( never meet) the bands you love live before they break up . Also, try some bands you’ve never heard, especially local bands! I famously missed a Replacements brawl in Tallahassee FL to finish a college exam, stupid. I am a firm believer in the idea that the more you love music, the more music you love.
