First Listen: Helplessness Blues by Fleet Foxes

It’s hard not to be excited about the constantly evolving nature of the musical landscape. Without the boundaries of time, I could honestly sit here and share incredible new music until it had evolved into something that didn’t hold my fancy.

So now, after a solid chunk of time since their highly-acclaimed, self-titled album, comes a new track from Fleet Foxes. Titled Helplessness Blues, it’s the title track from their new album, set to be released in early May.

The astounding thing about this stellar song is that it retains the classic Fleet Foxes sound, yet rises above their whole debut LP in terms of quality. Encompassing perfect harmonies – the likes of which can only be achieved by this band – and acoustic guitar that manages to still sound restrained and understated even when it ascends in both sound and volume, this band has more than delivered where we all hoped they would.
