Song of the Day: Fleet Foxes - Helplessness Blues

Exciting news today that the new Fleet Foxes album, Helplessness Blues, comes out on May 3rd. I've sung the praises of the band before, so I don't feel the need to reiterate how great they are. The first release is the title track from said album, and if it's any indication, the album could surpass my already high expectations.

  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.
