music you've never heard on a page you can't find

Another post inspired by Spin’s spread on the revitalization of Americana: I groovesharked The Head and the Heart this afternoon (while prepping for the math SAT II..) and it hurt to stop listening to their album.  This song in particular I loved.  The bass beat is reminiscent of John Lennon’s Give Peace A Chance, but with a more polished sound, obviously.  Another one I really like is this:

The lyrics are sweet: that typical nouveau-americana combination of really vague stanzas that make people crazy on songmeanings.com and archaic-feeling lyrics such as 

I know there’s California, Oklahoma
And all of the places I ain’t ever been to but
Down in the valley with
Whiskey rivers
These are the places you will find me hidin’
These are the places I will always go

So try them on for size, see what you think.  P.S. If you don’t have a grooveshark account, you should.  It’s a great way to try out new albums.

—Mrs. Mumford

I guess I put the P.S. in the wrong place.
