I have been a little obsessed with Fleet Foxes' Winter Hymnal since, ironically, last summer. This last Saturday they were a beacon of talent in an otherwise tepid SNL broadcast.
They played Blue Ridge Mountains:
At what point did hipsters start dressing as students from Humboldt County? We ran into some similarly dressed hipsters at The Well Saturday evening, and I thought they were taking the piss. They were not from LA. I realize now, years after my own hipster phase, that LA is not really that hip. A great place to have a career, an outdoor lifestyle, get discovered at a soda counter, but really, not that hip. That's OK. It's January 19th and I am going to play tennis in the 80 degree sunshine. To Hades with hipness. I left it behind with my Doc Martens and vintage dresses years ago.
