Fleet Foxes: Helplessness Bluesnew

There are two readings of Fleet Foxes' genial sophomore album. First, it is slightly dull; innocuous folk rhythms jostle against Robin Pecknold's demotic lyrics and boys'-choir three-part harmonies. Second, it is a nice experiment; its halcyon melodies, occasionally restrained, are loose enough to allow for some intriguing gambles.

Seattle's Fleet Foxes Make Languid, Woodsy Rocknew

The group like their timpani, and their echo, love the sound of waves bouncing off walls, dig the high, lonesome wail of falsetto in harmony. Can a flutist be far behind?

The Fleet Foxes Embrace Varied Source Materialsnew

The group's sound is an intricate architecture of baroque, psychedelic rock with addition of the infectious melodies of classic pop music. They accomplish this with not only the standard weapons of rock 'n' roll, but with instruments such as tympani, mandolin, organ, dulcimer and koto.

Fleet Foxes Tears Back the Centuriesnew

In their quest to fuse pre-rock 'n' roll sounds with indie-rock sensibilities, Fleet Foxes don't simply settle for 20th-century American Music 101. Rather, their time-travel extends all the way back to the Black Plague.
