  • Helplessness Blues

    I am literally giddy. I have been anxiously awaiting Fleet Foxes‘ followup to their eponymous 2008 masterpiece it seems like for ages. The airy harmonies of Pecknold and introspective lyrics touch me in a way little music can. It feels so effortless and so right; as if their music was not as much written as remembered.
