Headlights: Wildlife out soon, Get Going (mp3)

Get Going [mp3]

Cherry Tulips [mp3]

Get Going is the first track from Headlights’ upcoming 3rd album,  Wildlife (Polyvinyl Records, October 6th, 2009).

Cherry Tulips comes from Some Racing, Some Stopping (Polyvinyl Records, 2008).

Folk-pop with an itch, Headlights could be grouped near The Pains of Being Pure at Heart with a bent toward My Bloody Valentine yet built on a foundation of clean innocence. I don’t know if innocence actually exists in their music or elsewhere, and I suppose when they read that comment, they’ll likely laugh and denounce such a description. Nonetheless, that’s the underlying feeling I get from Headlights’ songs.

The band is Erin Fein on vocals and keyboard; Tristan Wraight on vocals and guitar; Brett Sanderson on drums; and Nicholas Sanborn on bass.

From the label: “Headlights’ third full-length, Wildlife, is a poignant piece haunted by the notions of loss and leaving, yet fueled by the power of survival. Following a tumultuous recording that saw the amicable departure of guitarist John Owen, the band turned the scrapped session into a confident, significantly personal work.”

We’re looking forward to Headlights‘ November LA stop. They’ll be stopping in for a live Luxury Wafers Session as well as playing Spaceland with Pomegranates and Anni Rossi (who, by the way will be here at Hotel Cafe Friday, Sept 11th, too).

Buy Wildlife. Buy Some Racing, Some Stopping.
