A Seattle sextet with three singers capable of taking the lead at any moment, The Head and the Heart is among the bands riding the wave of beardy, sweet-voiced neo-folk. Fortunately, the group does it well enough to stand out in an increasingly crowded field, with impeccably crafted songwriting to go with all those lush vocal harmonies.

Recorded live at The Gorge on Saturday, May 28, The Head and the Heart showcases songs from its self-titled debut as part of the 2011 Sasquatch Music Festival outside Seattle, Wash.
