Day 234

The Head And The Heart- The Head And The Heart

I've been listening to this religiously ever since I bought it on Record Store Day, so it was no problem putting them on again when it was its turn on the blog.

The weird thing for me is how I write about this album without it sounding like a "review". I try to avoid doing that. Typically that isn't a problem since most of my albums are a few years old, but this is a brand spanking new release.

Obviously because I've been listening to it religiously, I enjoy the hell out of it. It's kind of funny how 20 years ago, Seattle was known for the Grunge sound, but now you have all these indie folk pop bands coming out of there like these guys, Fleet Foxes, Cave Singers, and The Soft Hills. When was the last time a hard rock band came out of Seattle? Not that I'm complaining, I really dig this stuff.

Here's a video for "Down In The Valley" which I only heard once before I bought the album. That was all I needed to know that I had to get this album pronto. In fact, on Record Store Day, even though I scored a bunch of other cool albums, this was priority number one on my list that day.
