6. Helpnessless Blues
7. The Cascades

This is a fantastic sophomore album from Robin Pecknold and crew. My favorite tracks are: "Montezuma," "Battery Kinzie," "Lorelai," and "The Shrine/An Argument"- though I could honestly list every song on the album; it's that good. Pecknold seems to have perfected this sort of hymnal folk sound and his melodies are all brilliant. It's definitely a front runner for Album of the Year.
