Reseña de álbum

Props to Helplessness Blues for making the fretless zither cool again. On their second album, Fleet Foxes continue to take their music in unusual directions, creating a baroque folk-pop sound that hints at a number of influences — Simon & Garfunkel, Fairport Convention, the Beach Boys — but is too unique, too esoteric, too damn weird to warrant any direct links between the Seattle boys and their predecessors. It's still a downright gorgeous record, though, filled to the brim with glee club harmonies and the sort of stringed instruments that are virtually unknown to anyone who didn't go to music school (and even if you did, when's the last time you rocked out on the Marxophone?). Relying on obscure instrumentation can be a dangerous game, and Fleet Foxes occasionally run the risk of sounding too clever for their own good, as if the need to "out-folk" groups like Mumford & Sons and Midlake is more important than writing memorable, articulate folk tunes. But Helplessness Blues has the necessary songs to back it up, from the slow crescendos of the album-opening "Montezuma" to the sweeping orchestral arrangement of the encore number, "Grown Ocean." Robin Pecknold remains the ringleader of this Celtic circus. His is the only voice to cut through the thick, lush harmonies that Fleet Foxes splash across every refrain like paint, and his lyrics — rife with allusions to the Bible, Dante the Magician, and the poetry of W.B. Yeats — reach beyond the territory he occupied on the band’s first record, which painted simple geographical portraits with songs like "Sun It Rises," "Ragged Wood," "Quiet Houses," and "Blue Ridge Mountains." On Helplessness Blues, he's just as interested in the landscape of the human heart. Still, it's the music that stands out, and the band's acoustic folk/chamber pop combo makes every song sound like a grand tribute to back-to-the-land living.

Esta es una banda que ofrece texturas sobre un plano llano, unidimensional y al parecer lineal pero que de una forma u otra logran jalar un buen resultado con melodias alegres y trabajos buenos de mezcla y grabacion, si siguen asi, esperemos verlos encabezar algunos festivales en un par de discos


Primera vez que escucho a esta banday la verdad es que me sorprendieron , muy buenas rolas
en especial Helplessness Blues que por cierto esta semana la estan regalando.
P.D. Tambien escuchen Montezuma y The Shrine


Me fascino esta banda, tiene una música con una calidad increíble y diferente, no es común escuchar algo así en estos días.
Recomiendo enormemente "Helplesness Blues" "The Cascades" y "The Shrine / An Argument"


Se formó en: Seattle, WA

Género: Alternativa

Años de actividad: '00s, '10s

Seattle's Fleet Foxes are led by vocalist/guitarist Robin Pecknold, who fashioned his band's earthy, harmony-rich sound in honor of such perennial '60s artists as Bob Dylan, Neil Young, the Zombies, and the Beach Boys. Mixing Baroque pop with elements of classic rock and British folk, the band took shape in 2006 as Pecknold was joined by guitarist Skyler Skjelset, bassist Bryn Lumsden, drummer Nicholas Peterson, and keyboardist Casey Wescott. After playing only a handful of shows, the band generated...
