Fleet Foxes

 My new, favorite song...helplessness blues.

Music can evoke a range of emotions within just a few phrases and this one does it for me.
The ascending harmonies at the end of the song, and the sweet conviction, "if I had an orchard, I'd work till I'm sore... reminds me of CSNY's Our House.
Fleet Foxes' harmonies are reminiscent of Everly Brothers. 
The quintet describes its music as "baroque harmonic pop jams". 
Give it a listen.  The album debuts this May.
