Fleet Foxes Music Monday: Joni Mitchell’s ‘The Hissing of Summer Lawns’ “The Jungle Line”
For Music Monday, Skyler Skjelset and Robin Pecknold of Fleet Foxes continue to share some of their favorite records. This week’s pick is Joni Mitchell’s album The Hissing of Summer Lawns and the track “The Jungle Line,” which has been embedded below.
“This record is amazing, because I think a lot of people who are surface-level Joni listeners have a tendency to listen to things like Clouds or Blue, and this record is a good example of an artist reaching for new things in their music. The song “The Jungle Line” is a really good example of how you can bridge the gap and still be respectful to the way you write music but change your instrumentation.” —Skye (Skyler Skjelset)
