Product Description

Product Description

The Head & the Heart latest album is released on Sub Pop in the U.S & is the follow up to the Seattle band's critically and commercially successful self-titled debut which was released in 2011 which has gone on to sell over 300,000 copies worldwide. It wasn't that long ago that the six members of The Head And The Heart were playing on Seattle street corners attempting to attract the attention of passersby. Virginia native Jonathan Russell and California transplant Josiah Johnson formed the core songwriting partnership, which was rounded out by drummer Tyler Williams, keyboardist Kenny Hensley, vocalist/violinist Charity Rose Thielen and bassist Chris Zasche. That unbridled energy informed their debut album for hometown label Sub Pop, becoming one of the label's best-selling debut releases. In a few short months The Head And The Heart went from playing open mic nights to selling out San Francisco's Fillmore, Seattle's Paramount Theatre, New York's Terminal 5 and more. In addition to winning fans over in person through their live show, the band charmed audiences through performances on Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Late Show with David Letterman, and legendary Austin City Limits. As NPR put it, the band has "A natural knack for fortifying melancholic Americana sounds with the bright, powerful structures of pop songwriting - exceptionally well-conceived and their execution nearly flawless."

This sophomore album from "The Head and the Heart" is very welcome. Whilst a band from Seattle and signed to Sub Pop Records their music is much more folk rock orientated without a hint of the grunge in which that label once specialised. Their self titled debut sold a respectable 300,000 in the US and they have toured incessantly over the past two years supporting bigger acts like Mike Morning Jacket and Death Cab for Cutie. The big time may therefore be around the corner and they sit on the cusp of much wider recognition. "Let's be still" is a slightly nosier beast than their debut and more consistent. It shows growing confidence and songs like "Homecoming Heroes" and "Summertime" have a spring in there step. Yet there are far from the most impressive on this set. It is songs like "Another Story" where the bands true qualities shine not least the superb harmonies which underpin there songs. This is a standout track albeit it tells the heartbreaking story of the Newtown tragedy at the Sandy Hook School through the interpretative eyes of band member, Josiah Johnson. The gentle acoustics of "10,000 Weight in Gold" is probably nearer to the vibe of their debut and is a lovely ballad, whilst the pounding "Shake" shows that when the band plug in the electric guitars they can make a glorious noise.

There are a few issues as on the first listens the title track is bit ponderous and the 54 second long "Springtime" is nice enough but essentially the slow opening for Summertime mentioned above, begging the question why it isn't one song?

As an avid listener of their debut, self-titled album, I was slightly cautious about their second outing. Never forgetting that first love 'The Head and the Heart' have been cemented in my heart ever since, with the second album now under the belt I was fearful of such love being tarnished... Oh how more wrong I could have been.

Admittedly it has taken a few listens for me to warm to this unluckily numbered (argue amongst yourselves) thirteen track record, but as the lyrics have become branded on my brain it has only has become ever prevalent that the band have outdone themselves, taking a masterpiece and improving on it with depth and vigor; I can't get enough.

A level of maturity has come through in their writing that, although present in the past, has excelled in this case, taking the joyful, playful melodies of before and imbuing them with the melancholic verses of a more confident and growing band. Standout tracks include 'Cruel' and 'Fire / Fear'.

The album has only furthered my love for a band that is a breath of fresh air. I wholeheartedly recommend this album and personally cannot wait for what they come up with next.

This is a great album by a great band (their first one is also well worth checking out). Very good quality vinyl and they have released it in two discs so the sound quality isn't compromised, some bands will squeeze as many tracks on both sides just to save money on vinyl production but this band have obviously thought about the fans first. As for the songs, I'd just say buy it and give it a good listen, I'm sure you won't be disappointed

A fantastic album which grows on you with every listen. Each of the songs is so well crafted, they feel like old friends you have always known. I guess that is what it means to put together a masterpiece...

The Head and The Heart have done what I feared would be impossible. They have matched their fantastic debut album, with a sophomore album that shows their growing maturity as a band.
As with all good albums, this one is a grower, each listen reveals another brilliant track. The vibe is slightly more mellow than their last album, but they rock out on a few tracks still. It's difficult to pick standout tracks as their are many, but Homecoming Heroes, Another Story, Josh Mcbride, Let's Be Still, 10,000 Weight in Gold, These Days are Numbered and Gone, all spring to mind.
I seem to have named most of the album, but I guess that shows how good it is.
Join the growing band of people who follow this amazing band, you won't regret it.
