So coming off a long holiday break
(apologies for the small amounts of posts), needless to say we’re probably all a bit drowsy trying to get back into the groove. So I wanted a special Warming today and who else better to do that than The Head and The Heart. I saw these guys a few weeks ago on Seattle’s kick ass KEXP station as a ‘band you might have missed.’ After that they opened for Dave Matthews in Vegas and things seem to be picking up quickly for them. All of their songs gradually build and their harmonies and driving percussion really make the whole album spectacular. If the song below doesn’t brighten your Monday…drink some more coffee.
Check out their MySpace for some more incredible tunes.

Here’s another installment…
of our little ‘Monday Morning Music’ experiment
On this frigid morning, I bring you a track from Amos Lee. Amos is a singer-songwriter who doesn’t as much recognition as he should. Sure he has toured with Bob Dylan, Dave Matthews, Paul Simon, etc…but he seems to always be an afterthought or a B-level artist. This is “El Camino”, the first single off his upcoming 4th album ‘Mission Bell’ due out Jan. 25, 2011.
Hopefully this smooth cat can help ease you into your week.
