Release Date:05/03/2011;Notes:Like very nearly every worthwhile thing, making this album was not easy it was a difficult second album to make. Drawing inspiration from folk/rock from about 1965 to 1973, and Van Morrison's ASTRAL WEEKS in particular, HELPLESSNESS BLUES sees Fleet Foxes heighten and extend themselves, adding instrumentation (clarinet, the music box, pedal steel guitar, lap steel guitar, Tibetan singing bowls, vibraphone, etc., along with more traditional band instrumentation), with a focus on clear, direct lyrics, and an emphasis on group vocal harmonies. We have it on good authority that the album is called HELPLESSNESS BLUES for at least a couple of reasons. One, it's kind of a funny title. Secondly, one of the prevailing themes of the album is the struggle between who you are and who you want to be or who you want to end up, and how sometimes you are the only thing getting in the way of that. Having heard HELPLESSNESS BLUES, we mean to get out of it's way.;Track List:1. Montezuma;2. Bedouin Dress;3. Sim Sala Bim;4. Battery Kinzie;5. The Plains/Bitter Dancer;6. Helplessness Blues;7. The Cascades;8. Lorelei;9. Someone You'd Admire;10. The Shrine/An Argument;11. Blue Spotted Tail;12. Grown Ocean
