Helplessness Blues

I will always be in love with the Fleet Foxes, even when I listen to them way to much & get sick of them. They are wonderful to me, and even a a little sacred. Their next album is due out soon, but you can listen to the whole thing right now on NPR at this address.

And isn't their album art gorgeous!?

  1. Fleet Foxes are not the type of band that will initially blow you away. Rather, their music has to be chipped away layer by layer before you feel like you have a grasp on it, which is a great thing for an album's longevity. From that standpoint, their music takes effort to enjoy. It has depth and cannot be taken at face value. While "Helplessness Blues" doesn't initially stand out as a classic album I think it has the potential to grow into an album that will stand the test of time and ultimately end up on a lot of "Best of 2011" lists.
