My Head is an Animal is the debut Of Monsters and Men album and its an elaborately crafted blend of folk-rock and ambient soundscapes. This Icelandic six-piece has a real gift for hauntingly beautiful harmonies and soaring instrumentals, and both elements play a dominant part in this album's twelve, sweeping tracks. opener 'Dirty Paws' is chilling and showcases some of the album's standout harmonies, while 'Mountain Sound' takes cues from bright melodies, acoustic strums, and rollicking percussion. 'Little Talks' is driving and anthemic, while 'Love Love Love' is hushed and filled with longing. this is an album filled with gorgeous moments and heartfelt artistry, and we highly recommend spinning it all the way through - and then some. For fans of Arcade Fire, Mumford and Sons, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.
