EDITORS’ NOTES

This debut by the aptly named The Head and the Heart is a solid showcase for the band’s easy, earthy Americana-pop sound that taps into both body parts with the familiar touch of an old friend. The carefree “Cats and Dogs” opens things up, like a rope swing on a summer day: The theme of wandering roots is further explored in the gorgeous “Down in the Valley,” which uses a lithe violin and a beautifully nostalgia-laced vocal melody to sculpt a palpable longing.
