It's difficult to listen toLet's Be Still, the second album from popular Seattle "'folk'-'rock'" group The Head and the Heart without laughing. As soft as melted butter and with all the edges of a gelatinous blob, their songs seem like satire, a skit that Saturday Night Live might pull to poke fun at America's Mumfordization. Quoting Dylan hits and imitating Ryan Adams inflections, The Head and the Heart seem short on both assets but big on at least one other H—Humor, however unintentional it may be. With Thao & the Get Down Stay Down and Quiet Life.
