Joe on THATH:

I first learned of The Head and The Heart on a trip to Seattle in August of 2010…
I’m a passionate music fan with interest in bands from The Smashing Pumpkins & Pearl Jam to Ryan Adams, My Morning Jacket and Sigur Ros. While on vacation in Seattle, I searched out local record shops and spent some time at the Queen Anne & West Seattle Easy Street Records locations, which have a great selection of music and promote local acts. While browsing through the local section of the Queen Anne store, an album cover of a woman with a guy in a sheep’s mask smoking a cigarette caught my eye. That Robertsen Ashman photo kind of stuck with me and though I didn’t buy it that day, I returned to Easy Street another day specifically to purchase the album. Upon listening to the album, “Down In The Valley” initially caught my ear and after a few listens I really dug the music. The songs were meaningful and interesting with different time changes and great harmonies. It was really a happy accident. Upon returning to Wisconsin I spoke of it to a local record store and no one knew who they were…that is until Sub Pop signed them in January and the album was reissued with “Rivers & Roads” in April. It’s been interesting to watch the band go from 700+ fans to 50K+ on FB, the Conan performance and outperforming the headlining acts. Having attended several of their shows, I can say without a doubt the live performances are what make the band and create fans. High energy performances, emotionally true lyrics, and great musicianship that comes across incredibly cohesive. The Head and the Heart are really beyond that of their debut album and in my mind, one of the best and most honest bands to come out of the past 10 years.
