With all of the attention that the female trio Haim have garnered in the past few months they seem to be on an inclining plane, becoming the type of act that will draw attention to any track they are featured on. All the while the acclaimed Seattle folk artists Fleet Foxes have been laying somewhat dormant. With many of their fans speculating that they have their third album in the works one dedicated fan, who emulates their sound through his music, released a cover of "Don't Save Me" today.
While Haim's "Don't Save Me" was released last year, the Fleet Foxes Sing cover manages to rejuvenate the track by providing a mellow touch that exudes emotion through the subtleties in both the instrumentation and harmonious vocals that Fleet Foxes do well. Throughout, the vocals provide strain that plays off of the lightly plucked acoustic guitar creating a cover that is much more relaxed then the original.

In case a reminder is needed, refresh with video to Haim's original version of "Don't Save Me".
So here's to Fleet Foxes coming out with more original material and until then be sure to snag a download of the cover.
