“Cub Pilot” is a song off the new album Fruit Bats’ album The Pet Parade, which came out today. Fruit Bats is the long-time indie folk band fronted by Eric D. Johnson with a rotating cast of members filling out the rest of the band. While most of this album was apparently written before the pandemic, it was recorded by each individual band member alone in their respective space. It’s a gorgeous album that somehow seems to speak to these times even though it wasn’t specifically written for them. “Cub Pilot” is musically my favorite song off the album, so it’s the one I’m sharing here. I do encourage you to listen to the whole thing though.
