Harmony and butter. Individually they’re two of my favorite things. However, when mixed, they sound like a bad stripper name. BUT, if one band deserved the stripper name “Harmony Butter,” it would be Fleet Foxes, because their harmonies melt in your mouth like the butteriest chocolate chip cookie, or good popcorn. Okay, I’ve overused this metaphor, but you get the picture.
Their new single, Helplessness Blues, was released last month, and the vote is unanimous. It’s wonderful. (By unanimous, I mean myself, my co-writer Matt, and our fearless leader Chris really really like it.) So, please listen. Maybe even spare 99 cents on iTunes? Their new album, also called Helplessness Blues, is due to drop May 3rd! Gear up, nerds!
