New Music I Love: The Head and The Heart

I thought I would try something new today,and share a little music with you. I can't stop listening to this band, The Head and the Heart. They opened for the Decemberists last week, and I am in love. We actually got to the show late, and only saw their last song, but that was enough to have us intrigued. We bought the album as soon as we got home, and it's been playing nonstop since then!  So here's one of their videos...

The whole album is fantastic! If they are back in Chicago again, I will go out of my way to see their show. And the Decemberists were amazing, as always. We hadn't seen them in years, so it was fun to see them playing some of our old favorites, and also newer songs from the last couple albums. Officially a better than average Thursday night!

Who are you listening to lately? I lean towards more indie and alternative music, but am always open to suggestions!


  1. i've been hearing so much about them. i need to just give their whole album a listen, i think!

    oh and in response to your comment - yes, my friends loved being aupairs! they recently had to go back to america after their contracts ended and were devastated to say goodbye to their aupair families.

  2. i will def listen to this when i get home. i've been listening a lot to amy winehouse lately, of course, but a tiny band from PA that i like is called donora. you should listen to a few of their songs.

  3. oh they are one of my favorite summer finds as well!

  4. Hi Erin! I wanted to thank you for completing my life. I will now go catch up on episodes of Project Runway online! This may be the best news I have heard all day. ;)

    Currently, I am loving Mona. I need to give The Decemberists another go.

    Thanks for stopping by and giving me the good news! So nice to meet you.
