Album Review

Headlights' second album Some Racing, Some Stopping is a whole bunch of fun. The group builds on the promise of their first album and consolidates their strengths into a peppy, pretty and satisfying romp through ten songs that will have fans of light and breezy indie pop smiling like crazy. The album is split between uptempo tracks perfect for indie night at your local teen club, happy-go-lucky songs with glockenspiels, and sweeter-than-sugar ballads that might nudge your heartstrings but never tug too hard, all delivered with a huge cheery cherry on top in the form of Erin Fein's feather light and lovely vocals (though Tristian Wright's aren't bad but they are more workmanlike where hers are heavenly). Almost every song sounds like it could lead off a mixtape aimed at warming the heart of someone special; there is a giddy joy that permeates the record from start to finish. When the drums kick in and are joined by a chorus of bells on "Get Yer Head Around It" or when the doo wop harmonies of "So Much for the Afternoon" take flight, you'll be walking on air. Even the sad songs like the title track manage to be lighter than air thanks to the incredibly rich and layered production and the band's sense of restraint and ease. There are a lot of bands playing indie pop in 2008, but very few do it as well as Headlights do on Some Racing, Some Stopping.

Customer Reviews

I love it

Headlights comes back with a much more refined sound this time around. Where "Kill Them With Kindness" was more cluttured, "Some Racing, Some Stopping" has a clear and distinct sound about it. Every song has it's own mood to it making for an interesting listening experience everytime (evidenced in tracks 6, 8, and 10). I love it! it's a definite step up for this phenomenal band

Pretty Darn Good

This album is my first introduction to the band and I likey. They have a lot of catchy tunes to bob your head too. Check it out!!

Love it

We make a point to go see their show every time they come to play in our town. Their songs have only gotten better with each album. This album is bursting with energy and inspiring all at the same time. I love the tamborines they have added to many of the songs on this album. Keep up the great work Headlights!

Years Active: '00s

Headlights are an indie threesome from Champaign, Illinois, made up of members of Kindercore band Maserati and Parasol band Absinthe Blind. After name changes, false starts, and membership adjustments (at one point, they were known as Orphans) the group settled on their current moniker and lineup (Erin Fein on vocals and keyboards, Brett Sanderson on drums, and Tristan Wraight on vocals, guitar, and bass) in 2004. Headlights recorded their debut, The Enemies EP, with Adam Schmitt serving as producer....
