The Head and The Heart are must-see, live. It’s like texting versus hanging out. It’s your work screensaver versus being in the mountains. They jam energetically (think Matt & Kim) and produce melodies so intimate and relatable, you’ll swear you grew up with them. Thao & The Get Down Stay Down: anytime you can, you should. This quick-witted songstress wears her heart on her sleeve while the band brings a gritty rock-n-roll vibe. And Mayer Hawthorne? Ah, Mayer Hawthorne’s sound is so sweetly soul-infused, it’s hard not to fall for the uber-catchy hooks and his other-era looks.
