Fleet Foxes Post I Am All That I Need / Arroyo Seco / Thumbprint Scar Short Film

Friday, 07 September 2018 Written by Huw Baines

Fleet Foxes have shared a new short film accompanying I Am All That I Need / Arroyo Seco / Thumbprint Scar, the opening song on their recent ‘Crack-Up’ album.

Handled by director Sean Pecknold, the older brother of bandleader Robin and a regular collaborator, it was shot on 35mm film in the California desert and combines the sweeping landscape with a surreal central image.

Discussing the video with WeTransfer, who commissioned it as part of their WePresent series, Sean said:

It was a four day shoot. One day at a house in Palm Springs. One day in Lone Pine, off the 395, where they used to shoot a lot of Westerns. I had seen this road, these rocks, called the Alabama Hills at a place called Diablo Lake. We shot in a studio for 2 days too, where Adi and Aaron Wiley recreated the house and made this really long hallway. It felt like a full-on production.

The box looks CG. But it’s not. It’s all in-camera.

It’s one year since we said we’d see Tom Petty somewhere along the road, and it’s still a bitter one to swallow. We’ve had time to accept that there’s a full stop to his story, and to understand our relationship with his music in a new context, but that doesn’t mean we have to like it.

Perhaps you remember when Sting was cool instead, then? But once the Police went the same way as Stewart’s mob, their frontman launched a similarly disappointing solo career.
Imagination Is Key: How The Sheepdogs Are Keeping Rock 'N' Roll Colourful
Wed 31 Oct 2018
It’s virtually impossible to do anything completely new in the realm of rock'n'roll, especially when some of the greatest acts of all time have already pioneered, innovated and explored the genre to its very limits and beyond. Does that mean like-minded young bands should just lazily imitate their predecessors or even give up? Hell, no. They need to follow the example set by the Sheepdogs, write the best songs possible and spice them up with as many stylistic and instrumental flavours as their talents will allow.
