Album Review: The Head And The Heart - 'The Head And The Heart'
Deeply lacking any conviction
“I wish I was a slave to an age-old trade”, bleats singer Josiah Johnson Mumford-ishly on ‘Down In The Valley’, before compounding that clanger by braying on about “whiskey rivers” over limp Arcade Fire-isms. Faux authenticity is one thing, but it isn’t even done with any conviction; the ‘whoop’ on ‘Ghosts’ counts among the least convincing we’ve ever heard.
