Seattle based baroque-pop group, Fleet Foxes, are back with the follow-up to their critically acclaimed self-titled debut album of 2008. This May they deliver Helplessness Blues. The LP was hoped to have been released late 2009 but as reported by front-man Robin Pecknold, “the band’s touring schedule had caused them some setbacks.”
