Man, the New Fleet Foxes Record is Going to be Really Good, Isn’t It?

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.
