Check out: The Head and the Heart

What’s with all the end-of-year lists?  Holy cow!  2010 is not over, and I’ve seen dozens of end-of-year lists posted to sites across the Blogosphere.  You won’t see one from me until Christmas day or something.  I am still discovering stuff.  Take, for example, The Head and the Heart. Their album came out this summer, and somehow I missed it.  Go figure…

I have to credit Heather Browne from the I Am Fuel You Are Friends blog for turning me on to this band.  She posted a recent house show along with a review of the band’s debut album.  The review piqued my curiosity, and I enjoyed the show so much that I headed over to eMusic and downloaded TH &TH’s  self-titled album.   Their brand of folky, indie pop is extremely accessible, enjoyable and sometimes surprising.
