It’s been a few days and a lot has been going down, so it’s time for a roundup of news from around the web.  The message is simple: don’t be a slacker or you will have to put together a hell of a long recap blog post.

Jonathan Russell and Josiah Johnson from The Head and The Heart perform live.

Interview: The Head and the Heart’s Tyler Williams on the band’s journey from open mics to three nights at The Fillmore – – Interview/ Feature

In a well written feature article/interview before the Fillmore shows Tyler reveals all, well maybe not all, but a lot. Here is a blip ““It’s not a healthy criticism circle up there. It bore down on Jon. It came out in one song … it’s pretty angsty,” he said. A second song, going with the working title of “Bird With Her Own Cage” will have a “hair” of electronica. “It’s about unrequited love, when you were young. And now you can actually have love, when you’re older. Does it mean the same as that unrequited love?”

Highly recommend checking out the full interview.

The Head & The Heart: Seattle Band Are “Liked,” A Lot – – Feature/Interview - 

A great article that was released before THATH’s Salt Lake City performance opening for The Shins:
“They had something like 1,700 fans, and we had something like 1,600,” says The Devil Whale bassist Jake Fish. “So, Charity bet [Jones] that they could have more fans at the end of a year or something, just kind of joking around.” As of press time, The Head & The Heart had nearly 100,000 fans; The Devil Whale had nearly 3,000.

“I think they won,” Fish says with a laugh.

The feature goes on to discuss the relationship between the two bands (The Head and The Heart and The Devil Whale), and then dives into the song writing process on the new album and creativity with some input from Tyler.

From around the web:

The Head and The Heart Rose Bar Session  – GRASSCLIPPINGS – (Show Review)
Another strong review from the private Rose Bar Session show at the Gramercy Hotel.

Personal Tangent:
From the review..“Down in the Valley” is one of the best images of addiction I’ve seen in modern music.”
That was exactly how I felt the first time I heard that song, and exactly how I interpreted it.
Even though today, thanks to Tyler, I know the songs true meaning, I find it interesting, and always love to hear how others interpret the songs, and how they can become meaningful to so many for a plethora of different reasons.

A quick Q & A with Josiah with questions ranging from what it was like to play for Obama to why the band is playing two shows in Nashville, to plans for 2012. Def worth a quick read.

A great question and answer with Tyler with hometown Richmond magazine. Tracing Tyler’s move to Richmond in 2005, to joining the band, to what to expect in the future. A well-written and thorough interview. Worth a read, especially if you are a Richmond local.

A HUGE thank you to Gabriel Volcovich (Volco Films) for cutting, editing, and salvaging what he could from this video. This material was not easy to work with, as there was a ton of background noise, and we really appreciate all his hard work!
