The Head and the Heart / Let's Be Still - SP1060
In 2010, Virginia native Jonathan Russell and California transplant Josiah Johnson formed the core songwriting partnership of The Head and The Heart in their new hometown of Seattle. The band was quickly rounded out with the addition of drummer Tyler Williams, keyboardist Kenny Hensley, vocalist/violinist Charity Rose Thielen and bassist Chris Zasche. Their 2011 debut album on Sub Pop became one of the label’s best-selling debut releases to date. In a few short months The Head and The Heart went from playing open mic nights to selling out San Francisco’s Fillmore, Seattle’s Paramount Theatre, New York’s Terminal 5 and more, building a loyal fanbase across the country.
The new album, Let’s Be Still, is a snapshot of a band that didn’t exist just four short years ago. The album was recorded at Seattle’s Studio Litho with assistance from prior production collaborator Shawn Simmons. Later, the band traversed the country to mix the album in Bridgeport, CT, with Peter Katis, revered for his work with bands such as the National, Interpol, and the Swell Season.

The Head and the Heart / The Head and the Heart - SP915
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.
