    The same is often said of Sam Gamgee for Frodo. Same thing, I think. Just a couple of awesome dudes who are super super close, to the point? of it maybe looking homosexual.

    .. Why is everyone talking about Justin Vernon? His songs are so boring..his sound is so artificial, when Fleet Foxes’s sound is so organic. The? only man cool enough to be quoted here is Sufjan Stevens, as far as I am concerned.

    Thanks for the recommendation, Robin. Midlake is amazing; like if Fleet Foxes, Fleetwood Mac, and Radiohead had a musical 3-way…?
