While in town last week for their shows at United Palace Theatre, Fleet Foxes stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon for a performance of “Sim Sala Bim” from their extremely pretty new album, Helplessness Blues. The beards, the flannel, the wool hats, the mandolins… it’s all there, just as you’d expect, and it’s mighty powerful. I will also note that the vinyl version of the album has some of ths nicest packaging I’ve seen all year, so you should buy that.

One Comment

  • There are no hooks or memorable tunes on this album. I’ve listened twice with friends and no one gets it yet. This is organic background music AT BEST. I really wanted to
    like this one. I’m a big Wilco, Band of Horses, Black Crowes fan. Whats with all the 4 star
    reviews? This album will be forgotten about soon.
