The Pacific Northwest is known for indie folk bands like The Decemberists, Fleet Foxes, and now, The Head and the Heart.

The latest album from the six-member outfit is called Let's Be Still. The music is complex and lush, and a big step up from where the band started out. Frontman Josiah Johnson, originally a native of Orange County, says the Head and the Heart began with him and fellow guitarist Jon Russell performing on the streets of Seattle.
