The B List: Top 6 Of The First 6

With the first six months of 2011 beginning to feel like a distant memory, I figured it was time to continue a tradition by taking a look at my favorite six albums of the first half of the year for the Top 6 Of The First 6…

6) The Head And The HeartThe Head And The Heart

I’ll admit it, I had it in my mind that I wasn’t going to like The Head And The Heart’s self-titled debut, solely based on Bob Boilen of All Songs Considered fame not really being into it. It wasn’t until I caught the band’s exuberant performance of Lost In My Mind on Conan that I was finally ready to embrace the band’s brand of folk-pop, which doesn’t fall too far from the Blind Pilot tree. The Seattle-based act’s album is full of extremely likeable songs that immediately get stuck in your head, bouncy rhythms and lush three-part harmonies that are anchored by lead singer Josiah Johnson and beautifully accompanied by on the high end by Jonathan Russell and Charity Rose Thielen’s sultry, smoky vocals.

Listen: Fleet Foxes – Helplessness Blues

Back in 2008, the Fleet Foxes helped usher in the “Beard Rock” movement with a pair of releases via venerable indie label Sub Pop, namely the five-song EP Sun Giant and their self-titled LP. After a long three-year wait the Seattle-based band will release their sophomore effort, Helplessness Blues, on May 8. Today, the group has given fans a taste of what’s to come by offering up the record’s title track as a free download, which you can also listen to in the widget below…

In other Fleet Foxes news, the pastoral folk-rock act has quietly announced dates for an early Spring tour in support of the record, which kicks off on April 30 at the Vogue Theatre in Vancouver, BC and includes a high profile stop at the United Palace Theatre on May 18 in NYC. The band will be offering a limited amount of pre-sale tickets via their website tomorrow (February 1) starting a 9 AM PST, which also includes the ability to bundle your ticket purchase with a copy of the new album.
