Indie Scoop News - New Fleet Foxes



Seattle's Fleet Foxes emerged in 2008 as the band to beat.  Their lush harmonies saw them played on the lightest of summer days and the coldest, most wintry days.  It feels like they upped the bar for folk music.  I liken it to listening to a homespun folk band, and saying, "Wow, I really like folk music."  Then, the Fleet Foxes are saying and you punch yourself in the mouth.

The new album drops May 3rd and is called Helplessness Blues.  Listen to the title track courtesy of Sub Pop Records here:
