Seattle’s The Head and the Heart continue to build momentum. According to a new “On the Verge” article posted at USAToday.com, the band is working towards a fall headlining tour. After supporting talent such as Iron & Wine and the Decemberists and performing at Bonnaroo, the band will take part in the Austin City Limits Festival and the Newport Folk Festival.

For those of you who haven’t experienced The Head and the Heart’s blend of pop, rock and americana, you can purhcase their self-titled SubPop Records album at Amazon.com for $5 thru July 31. In fact, their single “Lost in My Mind,” is a free download at Amazon.com. You can take a listen to the track here:

Barton Hollow, the first full length album from The Civil Wars is available for a mere $5 at Amazon as an MP3 download. Since it’s release in February, Barton Hollow has peaked at #1 on the iTunes album charts, #1 on the Billboard Digital Albums chart and #2 on the Billboard Folk Albums chart. The band has performed twice on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno in the last year. In addition, the Civil Wars have been nominated for Best Emerging Artist by the Americana Music Association. Lastly, it didn’t hurt that Taylor Swift tweeted about the Civil Wars in late 2010.

Standout tracks on the album include the title track, the emotional barnburner “Poison & Wine and “My Father’s Father.” Check back soon for our review of Barton Hollow. An album we feel is one of the most consistent albums of 2011.
