Fleet Foxes’ unpretentious, crowd-pleasing directness was the key to their rapid rise. Their Sun Giant EP and self-titled debut LP, both released in 2008, brimmed with inviting melodies, evocative lyrics, and arms-open harmonizing that seemed designed to reach a wide variety of listeners. On the band’s follow-up, Helplessness Blues, the mood is darker and more uncertain, adding shade to their golden-hued sound. It’s comparatively deeper, more intricate, and more complex, a triumphant follow-up to a blockbuster debut.
