I don’t know anything about Fleet Foxes yet, but I ran across this song on iTunes and really liked it. So, I looked up the video on YouTube and really liked it too:

I definitely want to hear more of their music. Consequently, “Mykonos” is my song of the week. The lyrics are after the break.

The door slammed loud and rose up a cloud of dust on us
Footsteps follow, down through the hollow sound, torn up

And you will go to Mykonos
With a vision of a gentle coast
And a sun to maybe dissipate
Shadows of the mess you made

How did any holes in the snow tipped pines, I find
Hatching from the seed of your thin mind, all night?

And you will go to Mykonos
With a vision of a gentle coast
And a sun to maybe dissipate
Shadows of the mess you made

Brother you don’t need to turn me away
I was waiting down at the ancient gate

You go
Wherever you go today
You go today

I remember how they took you down
As the winter turned the meadow brown

You go
Wherever you go today
You go today

When I walking brother don’t you forget
It ain’t often you’ll ever find a friend

You go
Wherever you go today
You go today
