Fleet Foxes :: Helplessness Blues

Just realized that we had yet to cover/review Fleet Foxes sophomore album Helplessness Blues, released earlier this month. Been a while coming, this one, considering their debut effort was back in 2008. Like their debut, Helplessness Blues is a work of good solid, folk rock. So, if you like this type of music, or where a fan of there debut album, you will definitely love this one as well. The album is packed full of folk ballads nicely blended with an indie rock sensibility. I for one am glad to have them back. They are one of the many, many bands that I am greatly looking forward to seeing this July at the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago. Here are several of my favourite tracks and a video from the new album. Enjoy.

That should be a cracking gig in July! I agree - totally dug this record - haven't listened to anything else this week! Get your beard and poncho on and indie rock out :)
