Helplessness Blues

"Gold hair in the sunlight; my light in the dawn."

I have two favorite bands. Though I claim to love a plethora of acts, these two stand apart from all the rest in that they can do absolutely no wrong in my eyes. No matter what. Between the two I can't possibly pick a 'favorite favorite'; they're tied in my heart because their music is so astronomically dissimilar that to compare them would be an insult to both of their work. The first is Daft Punk. The second is Fleet Foxes.
Sidenote: Maybe this will help to shed some light as to why the music I post on here is so all over the place; my music taste is too.

Fleet Foxes released a new song today via their label, Sub Pop, along with news that their new album is coming on May 3rd.
Helplessness Blues is the title track to the album. The chills started at 2:50, after the introduction of the electric guitar. The tears started welling up at 3:10.
Yes, I'm that person.

It's being offered as a free download on the Sub Pop Soundcloud. Get it now.
