American folk rockers Fleet Foxes take the top spot on The Hype Machine's most blogged artists chart on April 5. UK rock band Yuck reenters the top ten in second place, while French electronic duo Justice takes third.
Buzz is building for Seattle-based band Fleet Foxes' upcoming album, Helplessness Blues, releasing on May 2 in the UK and May 3 in the US via Sub Pop Records. Following the release of "Battery Kinzie" from the new album, the band just dropped a new video for the track "Grown Ocean" that features "an array of footage from retro video cameras blending beautiful landscapes," writes blogger FensePost (www.fensepost.com).
Indie London-based rock band Yuck followed up the February release of its self-titled debut with a new single dubbed "Doctors in My Bed." "These UK rockers are making some of the best 90s era styled rock out there," writes blogger Music Savage (www.musicsavage.com).
