Fave Albums: Fleet Foxes - Helplessness Blues
Seattle's Fleet Foxes make some of the most beautiful folk music out there today. Their second album, 2011's Helplessness Blues, is full of layered vocal harmonies and these incredibly epic songs that sonically change direction halfway through. "Montezuma," "Battery Kinzie," "Helplessness Blues," "Lorelai" and "The Shrine/An Argument" are my personal favorites on an album that is full of high quality lyrics and instrumentation.
Favorite Lyric: So now I am older than my mother and father when they had their daughter, now what does that say about me? ("Montezuma")
Favorite Song: "Helplessness Blues"
