Robin Pecknold - "Olivia, In A Separate Bed"

There are some definitely pros and cons to Twitter: namely when Fleet Foxes frontman Robin Pecknold makes music, he likes to share it. The con is less directed at Twitter and more at any time of non-personal relationship. "Olivia, In A Separate Bed" is a break up song, plain and simple and details a great deal of Pecknold's shortcomings - namely a need for validation from fans/musicians/whoever. Not Olivia, apparently. Confession: There are two songs that have cause me to have a true outwardly emotional reaction (i.e. like crying...) and this is one of them. "Olivia, In A Separate Bed" with it's rawness will shake you to your very core. If it doesn't, you're not human and/or don't have a functioning heart. Simple as that.

Hear the devastatingly beautiful track here:
