Editorial Reviews

So many decisions in life and in the music we love can come down to a critical tug between the logic in our heads and the hot red blood beating through our hearts. Seattle s The Head and the Heart live authentically in that crux, finding joy and beauty wedged there. Their music pulses effervescently both explosively danceable and intuitively intelligent. With Americana roots and strong vocal harmonics that swell like a river, this band finds its anchor in solid songwriting that has even the jaded humming along by the second listen.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars... Strong debut album June 13, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Let me admit upfront that I had not heard this band until I heard their CD played at my local indie record store here in Cincinnati. I was really impressed with the quality of the tracks I heard then, and so I bought the CD. Am I glad I did! The Head and the Heart hail from Seattle, where in 2010 they self-released this debut album. Based on the strong buzz that followed the band shortly thereafter, the album was re-released on the Sub Pop lable in early 2011 (with one new track "River and Roads").

"The Head and the Heart" (10 tracks; 40 min.) finds it roots in folk and Americana, and as such shines. From the opener "Cats and Dogs" the album feels like an old friend that you have come to (re)appreciate. Singers/songwriters Jossiah Johnson and Jonathan Russell are the focal point of the band, with rich and warm voices. They are aptly supported by 4 more band members (bass; piano; violin; and drums). "Down in the Valley" is a pensive tune immediately that reminded me of Ryan Adams "Heartbreaker"-era, and he probably wishes he could write a song like "Down in the Valley" nowadays. "River and Roads" is another dramatic tune, done beautifully. "Honey Come Home" is another favorite track of mine on here, with great lyrics like "I think of all this time we've wasted with our fighting and I cry/I just wanna die with the one I love beside me", wow. "Sounds Like Hallelujah" is one of the more exuberant songs on here. The closer is "Heaven Go Easy On Me", and as the title implies, a perfect way to round out the album.

In all, this is a strong debut album, and at a crisp 40 min., you'll find yourself playing this again and again. I had the opportunity to catch these guys live this past weekend, and they put on a great set, bringing most of the albums's tracks. I think they are probably just living out of a suitcase as I just read they'll be back here again for another show in August. Meanwhile, "The Head and the Heart" is highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great pop folk, even better live June 8, 2011
By Jason L
Format:MP3 Music
Stumbled across this band when I saw the advertising video for this Year's Doe Bay Fest. Very solid album for a premiere album. Like other reviews have said, the album has a cohesive sound, with songs flowing one into another. The sound stays consistent across the album. If you like one of the songs you'll probably like them all. Its hard for me to identify a favorite.

All three main singers have interesting voice and they harmonize frequently. Good melodies, catchy riffs, excellent harmonies are all there. One of the things I like best is the focus of their lyrics, which seem to be mostly on relationships, friendships, family, and longing for meaning in life. This is not another angsty album about lost love, but has more mature and positive themes.

And go see them live. The album doesn't do justice to their live show.

My tastes in music do NOT reflect my age. I'm 14, and my favorite bands are Pink Floyd, The Beatles, The Who, Pink Floyd again, etc. Recently, though, I decieded to try and find some GOOD mondern music( No rap, bubblegum, speed metal, or the like). Then I found the Black Keys. I loved it, and they became one of my favorite bands. Then I stumbled across My Morning Jacket. After that, I knew that good music was still being made. But, I still haden't heard anything that was up to par with the music of the 60s, 70s, and EARLY 80s. Then, my Dubstep crazy friend said something I'll never forget: "Hey, based on the music you listen to, I think you'll like this." It was The Head and the Heart, and my love for them began. With James Taylor sounding acoustic riffs, two AMAZING singers(the woman sounds like Joni Mitchell), lyrics with THOUGHT, and the fact that they were powerful without a heavy electric sound, they quickly and easily capured a spot in my brain( and my heart) usually reserved for 70s Rock Giants. Here are my thoughts on each track, Which I HOPE you all take the time to at least Sample:

1. Cats and Dogs- 7/10 The weakest track on the album, but still amazing!!! Other than this, the album is practically flawless. This basically serves as an intro to Coeur D'Alene.

2. Coeur D'Alene- 9/10 I enjoy the soaring first half but its ALL good. This may be the only track where I hear SOME electric guitar. " Oh the things people will do for the ones that thet love "

3. Ghosts- 9.5/10 I feel like this could have been better as a slow acoustic guitar driven song. The lyrics are still powerful, but with that Swing-era sounding piano, it almost sounds Joke-ey.

4. Down in the Valley- 10/10 The 3rd best song on the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars my newest obsession January 13, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Discovered this band very recently and haven't been able to get them out of my head. Really catchy with broad sound and great harmonies. They are being talked about all over the place. I've seen articles and reviews grouping them with other awesome musicians like The Avett Brothers, Bon Iver, and Crosby Stills Nash and Young. Look them up! You won't be sorry. Can't wait to see where they go from here.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best band your not listening too. October 30, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
This album is just one of those albums that sticks to your ribs. Just as soon as you fall into the melodies, it tosses a left hook that is nothing short of a sucker punch, catching you totally off guard and bringing a new layer of pepperminty freshness to an already fresh songs. All in all, its nothing short of a revelation.
I have mentioned to several people that 2010 has fallen unbearably short in amazing music. Sure, there has been a couple quality albums, but only two spectacular (Wakey!Wakey!'s "Almost Everything I'd Wish I'd Said The Last Time I Saw You" & The Tallest Man On Earth's "The Wild Hunt") but overall, the year has been a scattershot of ok. And, not to put pressure on the band, but I put a lot of eggs in their basket to resurrect the year, and so far they exceeded all my expectations. Pick up this album, it is amazing.

Really enjoyed this debut album. Upbeat for a Seattle based group. Good vocals from all the leads. Should set a base for high follow-up expectations.
