Courtesy of the good people over at One Thirty BPM this morning, we get to hear another track from the upcoming Fleet Foxes record, Helplessness Blues. While the album’s title-track and first single had the band sounding very much like a modern-day Simon and Garfunkel, “Battery Kinzie,” streaming below, is more in keeping with the Appalachian-inspired sound of their debut, with powerful, if lumbering, percussion and gorgeous harmonies. The record’s not due out until May 3rd, but you can pre-order it here. Or you could bid on a test pressing of the album, which the band’s auctioning off to benefit the people of Japan.
