Fleet Foxes' second full-length album Helplessness Blues finds the Seattle band expanding their palette and lyrical scope while staying true to the gentle folk harmonies of their acclaimed debut. As much as that album evoked images of a wintery wilderness, Helplessness Blues brings to mind the golden sprawl of the desert with spacious arrangements highlighting delicate guitar melodies and the natural beauty of frontman Robin Pecknold's voice. The album will hit stores on May 3rd, but you can stream it in full here.
