    Head and the Heart suck live. They're terrible. Saccharine faux-sincerity.

    Frank Turner's not really folk. He's a rock and roll guy who plays some acoustic songs. He's not bad. (He's not particularly exciting, though).

    Saw the Head and the Heart last summer at Osheaga and they did not suck, Tom. Give em another shot. Bring your sincerity meter, just in case.




    Frank Turner is folk in the same vein as Billy Bragg is folk. Both can folk-out at a moment's notice.

    I'm sure they thanked you so much, from the bottom of their heart, for being such a great audience. I'm sure they told you how deeply moved they were and how much it meant to them that you were there. And then I'm sure they did more Coldplay-esque folk pop.

    The Head and the Heart must have banged Tom's girl or something, his jimmies are so rustled.

    Band A sucks.

    So, I say, "Band A sucks". I elaborate, briefly, just to illustrate my point.

    You conclude, "Band A must have had sex with Tom's special someone."

    Now. You reveal much about yourself. What would Freud say about that? or Jung?

    Don't divulge this little secret to the organizers of the Newport Folk Festival; they might cancel the thing.

    Florida Georgia Line, duh.

    Stagecoach is not necessarily deep on it, but Shakey Graves, Sarah Jarosz, TBT, Shovels and Rope, Spirit Family Reunion, Hurray for the Riff Raff, and Jason Isbell are all great acts heavily influenced by the old folk legends.

    Also, I'd like to reaffirm that the Head and the Heart are very solid live and seem to enjoy what they are doing. Their set at Outside Lands last year was pretty damn magical.

    Shovels and Rope play some pretty rootsy folk music, but also have some rock songs. Also they were awesome at Coachella last year (but i've read your Saturday rant in which you didn't like them). Trampled by Turtles?
