I hope everyone enjoyed their extended holiday weekend!
Listed below are this past weekend’s The Head and The Heart news and headlines from around the web. Enjoy!
The Most Criminally Overlooked Artists Of 2011 – Buzzworthy.mtv.com
Possibly my favorite find of the weekend. I found it interesting that the author notes that she is surprised that “The Head And The Heart didn’t blow the hell up in 2011″. If this wasn’t blowing up, I can’t wait to see what 2012 has in store for these guys (and girl).
The Head and The Heart managed to keep the theme of making it to the top of 2011 lists alive this weekend:
