The Captain Dials It Back A Bit: MR 2011-7

This week’s Two For Tuesday is considerably more mellow than last week.  First on the list is Helplessness Blues by Fleet Foxes.

It already seems like what I refer to as “granola rock” is set to make a big push again this year.  Much like in 2008, Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver, and Blitzen Trapper are all due to release albums in 2011.  If this song is an indicator of things to come, then it’s gonna be a good year.

Second this week is Forget That You’re Young by The Raveonettes

I’ve been a fan of The Raveonettes for quite a few years. 

Their sound varies greatly from album to album, which is a good think more often than not.  They’ve been included in four previous Modern Rock discs and it looks like they’re already a strong contender for making their fifth appearance with this beautiful little song.

Their new album, Raven In The Grave, is coming out next Tuesday, April 5.  Three days later, I’m planning to catch them here in St. Louis at the Firebird with Nikki the Intern.  Should be a good show; I’m sure I will discuss it in detail afterwards.  So until then, enjoy!

Ciao,

The Captain
