There’s quite a bit of buzz today surrounding the announcement released by the simply awesome Fleet Foxes. Their highly anticipated (and for those impatient like myself, long-awaited) sophomore album, Helplessness Blues, is set to drop May 3. They have also released tour dates. Unfortunately Rochester is not one of them which makes me sad. Nashvegas is, but I will be in Rochester preparing to graduate, so I’ll miss them at the Ryman. I urge all my Nashville buddies to go see them if you can, and let me know how awesome it was. The rest of the tour dates can be found here.
They have also released a single “Helplessness Blues.” I, naturally, think it’s fabulous. Have a listen.
Update: So it’s a good day for music. About ten minutes after posting this, I discovered that yet another of my favorite artists announced an album release date today. Brett Dennen’s Loverboy drops April 12. See the lovable redhead make the announcement, himself, here.
