Jukebox Jury: Feist, ?uestlove, SNL’s Bobby Moynihan | SPIN
Angelically crooned — and impressively bearded — back-to-the-land folk
FEIST: I’ve heard of Fleet Foxes forever, but this is the first song of theirs I’m familiar with. It’s amazing how quickly this band became part of the cultural vocabulary. You hear their name and you immediately think of this folky, bearded Brooklyn sound.
?UESTLOVE: I can hear the beard scraping against the guitar.
MOYNIHAN: I didn’t know them at all until they were on SNL this year. I have a very distinct memory of being in the dark, in costume, wearing roller blades and having someone tell me that my sketch was cut while Fleet Foxes were playing. I was very sad.
FEIST: So Fleet Foxes symbolize your personal failure.
?UESTLOVE: This was your soundtrack to sadness.
MOYNIHAN: It was the soundtrack to my working for 72 hours straight for no reason.
