While You Were Snoozin: Robin Pecknold (Fleet Foxes) Covers Pearl Jam
Who is this clean shaven maniac holding an electric guitar and what has he done with Capt Scruffy Butt, Robin Pecknold?! It's Pearl Jam Week on Jimmy Fallon. On Thursday and Friday nights, our Seattle buds will join the show as musical guest to celebrate week two of their new album Lightning Bolt.
To start the week, guests were invited to perform PJ songs. What I expected to happen during a cover of "Courduroy" and what happened were two vastly different things. Undistorted yet messy sounding electric guitars courtesy of Pecknold and Grizzly Bear's Daniel Rossen built at the begging and were joined by DRUMS!?! I thought we'd get Robin with a capo'd acoustic guitar and some resulting folk-y serenade. Boy was I wrong:
Dammit. He's so cool.
