SPIN
To tame the musical beast that is SXSW 2011, SPIN Magazine has culled the Fest’s 2,000 count performance lineup to select this year’s “can’t miss” acts—and two rising Seattle stars have made the list! The Head and the Heart and Fences are featured amongst the SPIN editors’ 35 top picks for the week-long Austin event. Of The Head and the Heart SPIN says, “This folk-rock outfit have been called the Emerald City’s Next Big Thing — and these five twentysomethings [….] are well on their way to fulfilling that prophecy. In under a year, they went from collaborating at an open-mic night at a Seattle coffee shop to releasing their self-titled debut.” SPIN also outlines the appeal of homegrown crooner Chris Mansfield—aka Fences: “The tattoo-covered singer-songwriter [….]sings with breathy earnestness, as if he was born to coo sad acoustic songs of relationships gone awry.” Check out the full article via the link above!
