# 12 (TM) - The Head and The Heart - The Head and The Heart

The Head and The Heart are a loose-limbed collective of indie folkies whose "Sounds Like Hallelujah" sounds like Rufus Wainwright leading a midnight reverie with Mumford and Sons. The Seattle group join a growing list of young bands (Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver, Avett Brothers, Felice Brothers) who sound like old souls blending acoustic roots music and heavenly harmonies to create nu-folk sounds that can reach across generations. Lovely.

For all you haters and Pitchfork nerds, keep pretending  tUnE-yArDs is listenable.
