JDIZZY's 365 # 306: Helplessness Blues

Helplessness Blues - Fleet Foxes (2011)

Ladies and gentlemen, the newest song on the 365! Originally set to be "Blue Ridge Mountains", this Fleet Foxes' entry had to be changed with the release in January of the title track from their upcoming album. Sounding like a long lost outtake from Simon & Garfunkel, the Seattle Boys can now add Baroque Pop as one of their influences besides Sunny CSNY harmonies and folk rock progression. It's also a "Bohemian Rhapsody" for the hairy bearded set, giving us multiple sections filled with yearning, hope and beauty. I cannot recommend a free download more then this one. Go to Sup Pop's website, get it for yourself and pre-order the new disc, out May 3. If you weren't already hip to the power of this groups' aural prowess, now is the perfect time to catch up!

It sounds good solo too!!!
