The Head and the Heart
Label: Sub Pop
Catalog #: 70915
Recorded in early 2010, this is the debut full-length by The Head and the Heart. Self-released in June 2010, the album helped build an impressive head-of-steam for the band through the second 1/2 of the year, gaining fans at influential Seattle station KEXP, local record shops (a consistent top 10 seller for Easy Street and the #1 album of 2010 at Sonic Boom), and venues up and down the West Coast, culminating with signing to Sub Pop Records in November. For this 2011 re-release of the album, “Sounds like Hallelujah” has been re-recorded, live favorite “Rivers and Roads” has been added, and the album has been remastered.
The vinyl version comes in a deluxe gatefold jacket with gold foil printing and includes an MP3 download (320k) of the album. The cover of the vinyl version is different from the CD: it has an off-white border framing the cover image that appears on the CD.
The digital version is presented at a glorious 320k bit rate.
