    Fleet Foxes' Robin Pecknold was a guest on NPR's All Things Considered. He discusses the band's new album, Crack-Up, and shares some of the experiences he had in the years since the release of the group's previous album. "Anything can teach you a lesson that you apply to what you make," says Pecknold. "And I still feel that way. I still feel like the more experience I have outside music, the closer my music is to what I want it to be. And it's just about chasing those experiences." You can hear what else he has to say in the interview here.
