Calling An Audioble: Fleet Foxes

(Photo via
I decided to add the new Fleet Foxes album, Helplessness Blues, to my Rdio queue last week. I've listened to the album 3 times since then and I gotta say that I'm really feeling it. I would describe their sound as medieval Simon and Garfunkel, packaged with stellar harmonies and haunting acoustic guitar work.

Fleet Foxes are a 6 piece from Seattle that have released 2 full albums, the first being self titled, on the iconic Sub Pop label. Tracks of interest include Sim Sala Bim, The Plains / Bitter Dancer, The Shrine / An Argument and Helplessness Blues, which is available as a free download on their official website.

This is the perfect album to throw on if you invite the guild to your house to enjoy some fine mead or if your looking to cut out the noise and chill. You can expect this to be in my top 20 for 2011.
