- The Head and the Heart were still a young unsigned band when they released this self-titled debut in June 2010. A mix of Northwestern folk and homespun Americana, the album attracted the attention of several labels. The group wound up signing with Sub Pop before the year was through, paving the way for the album's "official" release -- which included remastered tracks and the addition of concert favorite "Rivers and Roads" -- in early 2011.
Spin (p.71) - "[T]he Head and the Heart sell their rootsy sincerity -- file alongside the Avett Brothers, Mumford & Sons, Low Anthem -- with irresistibly hooky harmonies."
