Fleet Foxes at United Palace in May (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Fleet Foxes

Fleet Foxes go on a short tour in July with an unannounced opener. According to their twitter, "super pumped for who we're touring with in July, but can't announce yet due to other tours." Fleet Foxes also have some dates in September scheduled with The Walkmen (!) including ACL where both bands appear, and at Williamsburg Waterfront on September 24. Tickets for the Brooklyn show go on sale Friday (6/10) at noon.

Welt Martin of The Walkmen called Fleet Foxes' debut his fourth favorite album of 2008. Great to see them play a show together, especially since Fleet Foxes have also "been such gigantic fans of theirs since their first album."

Meanwhile the Walkmen play this weekend at Bonnaroo. All tour dates below...

There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with some hummus over there
Telling me I got to beware

I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody eat some hummus now

Who said hipsters are fags and they suck it
He said with a grin as he saw hair on their chins
You've ruined NY I'm out, fuck it.

Long as I remember chick peas been coming down.
Clouds of myst'ry pouring tahini on the ground.
Good men through the ages, Trying to find the sun;
And I wonder, Still I wonder, Who'll bring the hummus?

Lately hummus just don't taste the same
Its tasting funny, but I don't know why
'Scuse me while I kiss the pita.

I've seen the hummus and the damage done
A little pita bread for everyone
But every chickpea's like a setting sun

There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
And she's buying the large hummus platter.
When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.
Ooh, ooh, and she's buying the large hummus platter.

Ain't no sunshine when the hummus is gone.
It's not warm when it's away.
Ain't no sunshine when the hummus is gone
And it's always gone too long anytime the hummus goes away.

Hey, check out that stench eminating from all these corny loser "lyrics"...

Posted by Anonymous | June 8, 2011 5:03 PM

These lyrics aren't corny... They are actually the original lyrics, but were edited by the label executives to the versions you are more familiar with. Don't tell me you didn't know that?!

Hummus over me no matter what I do

Posted by Anonymous | June 8, 2011 5:10 PM

Hello chickpeas, my old friends
I've come to open your can again
Because a farmer softly creeping
Left his seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of hummus

On Bedford Avenue I walked alone
Approaching the great James Murphy's throne
Beneath the fine text of my food stamps
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my beloved were stabbed by the flash of a food processor
That split the chickpeas
And touched the sound of hummus

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand hipsters, maybe more
Hipsters talking without speaking
Hipsters hearing without listening
Hipsters writing songs that no sane person likes
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of hummus

"Fools", said I, "You do not know
Hummus like a river flows
Hear, my pita, that I might dip you
Take my spoon, that I might eat you"
But my words, like droopy tahini paste fell
And echoed
In the vats of hummus

And the hipsters bowed and prayed
To the smooth 'n creamy god they made
And the hummus flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said, "The words of James Murphy are written on the L-train's walls and the Music Hall"
And whispered in the sounds of hummus

In the clearing stands a pita
And some hummus by his plate
And he dips into reminders
Of ev'ry vegan that laid him down
And cut him till he cried out
In his anger and his shame,
"I am chick peas! I am chick peas!"
But the pita still remains

Li la li ....

Welcome to the chickpea jungle
We got fun 'n' games
We got everything you want
Honey we know the names
We are the snack that you can find
Whatever you may need
If you got the money honey
We got your hummus platter

Chorus:

In the hummus jungle
Welcome to the hummus jungle
It tastes so good it will bring you to your shun n,n,n,n,,n,n,,n,n,n,,n,n,,
Knees Knees!
Be careful by the blender blade cuz it will make you bleed!

Well we don't know from hummus
But we now what we don't want
And the BV is uncertain
give us time to type it out


Well we know where's the hummus
But we don't know where's the curd
And we know you're all hipsters
And you follow the hipster herd
And we're not little children
Although we live in our mom's basement
Like A. Weiner was certain
It was not his our own pup tent

Oh, it's so funny to eat hummus after so long, girl
And the way you spread I understand that you were not impressed
But I heard you let that little carrot of mine
Dip in you pasty dish

I'm not gonna eat felafel and the pickles
Like those other vegan valentines
'Cause I don't know if you've been eaten by somebody
I only know it isn't mine

Hummus plate, I know this thread is killing you
Oh, hummus plate, my pita is true

Posted by Anonymous | June 8, 2011 5:40 PM

"There must be some way out of here," said the pita to the pea,

"There's too much tahini, I can't get no relief.

Hipsters, they drink PBR, Frohawk digs LCD,

None of them in the Midwest know what any of it means."

you know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
nerds, that I really like to eat hummus
Come on people, don't eat hummus
Come on people, don't eat hummus
Try to set the hummus on fire

Its Time to find another food
No time to wallow in the aisle
Try now you can only thrive
And your love for hummus become a funeral pyre
Come on people, don't eat hummus
Come on people, don't eat hummus
Try to set the hummus on fire

I will add the assorted hummus from Trader Joe's is great. Edamame hummus...chipotle hummus...list goes on and on.

I have found the hummus at trader joes to be of decent quality, but I generally prefer the whole foods blends.

Some folks are born made to eat hummus
Ooh, they're beige, tan and brown
And when Radiohead plays "Hail to the Thief"
Ooh, they dip the pita and chow down

It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no Hummus Baron's son
It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no fortunate one

Some folks are born silver pita in hand
Lord, don't they help themselves,
But when the Omar comes to the door
Lord, the house looks like Mamoun's

It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no Hummus Baron's son
It ain't me, it ain't me; I ain't no fortunate one

Some folks inherit olive oiled eyes
Ooh, they send you down to war
And when you ask them, "How much Hummus should we give?"
Ooh, they only answer more, more, more

It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no Hummus Baron's son
It ain't me, it ain't me; I ain't no fortunate one

She's been a bad pea
She's like tabouli
Though you try tameric
she's like a narcotic
You wanna dip in her
You wanna spread with her
All the cukes you cut for her
could not raise her temperature

Hummus up 'til you can feel it
Hummus up when you don't really need it

Posted by Anonymous | June 9, 2011 10:12 AM

I will now proceed to serve hummus to the entire ares ...

Almost cut my pita
Happened just the other day
Was gettin' kinda round
I coulda said it was in my way

But I ate it, and I wonder why
I feel like letting my hummus flag fly
And I feel like I ate it
with pita

What a drag it is getting old.

Things are different today,
I hear ev'ry mother say
Mother needs something today to fill her up
And though she's not really ill
There's a little yellow platter
She goes running for the shelter of her mother's little helper
And it helps her on her way, gets her through her busy day.

"Things are different today,"
I hear ev'ry mother say
Cooking fresh food for a husband's just a drag
So she buys a sabra blend and she buys a frozen pita
And goes running for the shelter of her mother's little helper
And to help her on her way, get her through her busy day.

Mamoun, please, some more of these
Outside the door, she ate four more
What a drag it is getting old.

You're the kind of wiener
You meet at certain barbeque affairs
Center of the bun, sitting in the sun
Hawking all those non-vegan wares
Well, it seems to me that you've been eaten too much in too few years
And though you've tried you just can't hide
Those droppings, bones and hairs

You better stop
Look around

Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes
Here comes the Mamoun's hummus platter

10:26... Although i appreciate your handiwork with construction of t-joints, i feel your comment is very juvenile and shouldn't be placed among these songs praising the hummus. Please reserve such comments for odd future posts, and if you can, bring me a few baby carrots. Organic ones.

She comes back to tell me she's already eaten
As if I didn't know that
As if I didn't know a full belly
As if I'd never noticed
The way she ate her babaganoush even after it got smelly
And she said losing hummus
Is like tabouli for a heart
Everybody sees your wheat germ dots
Everybody smells your farts blow

I'm going to Hummusland
Atlantic Avenue
I'm going to Hummusland
Hipsters and Hajiis with families
And we are going to Hummusland

Here comes the hummus

Little pita, it's been a long cold lonely buffet
Little pita, it seems like years since you've been smeared

Here comes the hummus
Here comes the hummus
And I say
It's all mine
