Open your ears and stomp your feet. The Head and the Heart takes care of everything in between with joyous pop folk.

In little more than a year, the Seattle-based sextet has taken its robust harmonies and vibrant, acoustic instrumentation from local open-mics to national gigs such as South By Southwest and Bonnaroo. The band's self-titled album features mellow songs reminiscent of Mumford & Sons as well as more upbeat tunes akin to Dr. Dog.

Guitars, drums, piano and violin back three vocalists -- Josiah Johnson, Jon Russell and Charity Thielen -- who join forces to deliver playful lyrics as in "Sounds Like Hallelujah" or the catchy album track "Ghosts": "One day we'll all be ghosts/Trippin' around in someone else's home." The contemporary edge that the band injects into familiar folk sounds appeals -- as its name suggests -- to both an emotional and intellectual listening.

For this Live at KDHX session, the sextet pared down to just the trio of Johnson, Russell and Thielen for a set that recalls the group's Seattle open mic origins.
