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.”More
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).
