[newportfolk] Seattle's the Head and the Heart, live from the Harbor stage

Upon the recommendation of many, I pulled myself away from Middle Brother's early introductions on the Quad (before they'd morph into a three-song Dawes set) and stopped, for a second, about thinking about Elvis Costello at the Fort a few short minutes later, and swung by the Harbor stage to catch THE HEAD AND THE HEART. With a huge buzz in the air and a seemingly-about-to-explode fanbase, the Seattle indie-folk crew brought back warm memories of Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes in the same spot, albeit rotated, a year ago... but, well, you know, without a "Home" and that sketchy synthpop past.    

Here they are performing during Day 2 of this weekend's Newport Folk Fest, and yes, I'm aware, I'm way the eff in the back. It was crowded and I got there mid-set. When the Head & the Heart are back in town Sept. 30 at Royale, I'll be sure to get there on time. I'm certain I'll have company.
