Helplessness Blues — Fleet Foxes

Logan McMillen

Is that…is that the Fleet Foxes trying to sound like Mumford and Sons? Their signature lush vocal harmonies take a back seat to some overly enthusiastic acoustic strumming. The second half of the song evokes their earlier style, with rich, hard left and right panned guitars…hopefully that’s redeeming enough for veteran lovers. I get the feeling that this song is going to be huge.
