Fleet Foxes- Helplessness Blues TRACK REVIEW

Listen: http://theneedledrop.com/?p=2685

1. Vivian Girls MP3: http://theneedledrop.com/?p=2694
2. New Toro Y Moi track: http://theneedledrop.com/?p=2698

Fleet Foxes’ latest song is an epic tease toward their sophomore album. Not only is the production fantastic, but the song structure and lyrics show a lot of ambition–even though they deal with the fear of being a small fish in a big pond.

If all the songs on this album are like this, we’ll be in for a helluva album!

What do you think of this song? Love it? Hate it? Why? What should I review next? What do you think of Fleet Foxes’ first album? Will this LP be better?

Did you borrow that sweater from my 3rd grade teacher?
Oh, and my 3rd grade teacher was a woman. That was the joke.

Please review – Bright Eyes ‘The People’s Key’.

SwitchandtheSpur3 says:

I’m really digging the new track. It definitely has that Fleet Foxes sound, but bigger. Can’t wait for the new album, I loved the debut.

Are you super fat, I cant tell?

Ryan Sheridan says:

toro y moi – new beat

Jon Au says:

Have to love Fleet Foxes. Going to see them live in may..very exited.

wexerguy90 says:

New Tool album. Eh will only be a downtread of 10,000 days which was not as good as Lateralus.

namnatulco says:

@KingofVilla, generally I’d agree with you, but TBH not for this track, unfortunately.

guitarpope says:

Are you super fat, I cant tell? Also solid review

Julian Des Marais says:

Great review, agreed 100%, absolutely cannot wait for their album since hearing this

Typhoon’s “Hunger and Thirst” is an album I would be curious of your opinion of, PLUX

Halveraptor says:

I really dig “Helplessness Blues”. My favorite song this year so far, next to “The Wilhelm Scream” by James Blake.

TheJMan says:

When he said, “let’s have a listen to what this title track has to offer” I paused the video and said outloud to myself, “*Nod* Yes..yes let’s do that”and then started doing this weird inhale laugh.

Ryan Stevenson says:

Good to see that you like prog rock — Nice Jethro Tull cover in the back! Please review some prog rock- there is a band called ‘Blackfield’ that are releasing an album in march called ‘Welcome to my DNA’- good pop/prog music. You may have heard of it if you listen to Steven Wilson’s project ‘Porcupine Tree’. Again, excellent stuff

ol says:

at this time we still didnt know just how good this album would be (and how disappointing the radioheads would be) . if i had an orchard….

Jonathan Michael says:

dork listens to the song one time and he’s an expert.

Chris Knorn says:

just wondering if you´ve heard about an interesting band from Berlin, Germany named the BEATSTEAKS – they are (not only) known for their great live shows.
On Jan 28th they have released their new Album Boom Box and this has gotten A LOT of attention. Would be very interested in a review done by you and would be of interest for other people here as well I suppose.
Current single is named “Milk & Honey” (-> youtube)
thx, Chris

ProsecutorGodot says:

old fantano just isnt as great

Yem Iso says:

Man I miss this intro

twest23 says:

Beautiful song…. except for that guitar lick starting at 2.24, it made me cringe. Just seemed out of place. Not enough to ruin a song, but try not to hear it now that you know its there.
