Album Notes
Release Date: April 29th, 2008

"The best kept secret in the galaxy!"

The Fountainheads - "What Means So Much" - 2008

"What Means So Much", The Fountainheads second full-length record release was recorded throughout 2007 in both the band's studio, Manor Lane Studios, located in Hastings, MN and the famous Pachyderm Studios located in Cannon Falls, MN. The spirited foursome claim the south-eastern edge of the Twin Cities metro as their home and the sounds on this record illuminate the listener with both the hustle and excitement of modern metropolis (Warning Signs, College-Town Blues) and the soul sweeping grace of the wind across the prairie in big sky country (What Means So Much, A Cold, Cold Wind Is Gonna Cry). This is a traveling record and The Fountainheads cover a lot of ground both in style and content. You'll hop a greyhound to California (505), spend a rainy day in Europe (Spain) and trace an orbit in outer space (Tell Me Where You Want Me). In fact, you'll even hear a tinge of American highway alt-country interspersed throughout the record (Last Winter, Trying To Work It Out). The piano steals the spotlight every four or five tracks and delivers brilliantly (Maybe You Were Mine, Going Right Back To You, Stuck In The Middle Of This Year). Power-chord laden rock'n roll aims for the heart and hits its target (Just Because I Told You So, Prove It To Me). And before the disc stops spinning there is still time for a discourse on the races we run that can't be won (Speed Of Light) and a steady promise from a steady heart (I'll Be There To Catch You If You Fall).

From heartache to devotion, from rock 'n roll to ballad, from solos that thunder to lyrics that spark wonder this record shows you up and down and then turns it upside down. It is a record that reminds us that in life it is not our arrivals from destination to destination that make the notes, but rather the movement in between that matters most.

Buy this record. It promises to become one of your favorite highway companions.


The Fountainheads are... Chris Hornisch (Bass, Vox), Tom Hornisch (Rhythm Guitar, Piano, Vox), Jake Davisson (Lead Guitar) and Jeff McCusker (Drums)

CD Review - The Fountainheads - What Means So Much
Posted on July 1st, 2008 by Riftyrich

By Nelson Heise

The Fountainheads new disc “What Means So Much” is just pop gold. Every track finds a little Beatles flavor toppled with more modern sounds of The Minus 5 and Ween. Not that long ago I was asked to review The Fountainheads first self-titled EP and it was good, but it wasn’t a complete polished package. That is not the case for the new disc, great riffs, nice harmonies and really strong melodies. The Fountainheads are lead by Hornisch brothers who come with a battery of personal experience of love in your early twenties, and it is hard not to reflect on that life not so long ago.

“Tell Me Where You Want Me and I’ll Be There For Sure” sounds like a lost hit from the early sixties that this reviewer can’t help but think of that damn Tom Hanks flick “That Thing You Do” and its song of the same title. “Speed of Light” is a more rambunctious song that leads nicely into the next track “College Town Blues” which is a personal favorite that reflects on the trials and tribulations of college life, if I could only have those problems again. “I’ll Be There to Catch You If You Fall” is a laid back country-esqe track that has a sweet little violin track. My only complaint, the titles of the tunes are too damn long, but I’ll live with that if they keep cranking out these cool tunes.

CD Review - The Big Takeover - New York, New York - Issue # 63, Fall 2008:

The Fountainheads - What Means So Much (Hornisch Records)

I remember reviewing brothers Chris and Tom Hornisch on their eponymous Fountainheads release. (Brad Harvey did their older Urban Sun for us.) And the bits of Beatles, Oasis, Robyn Hitchcock, and Rutles back then remain -like the crying George Harrison slide guitar on "Warning Signs", or the slightly nasal vocals Oasis offers (without gutteral accent, just boyish charm)- but they seem so understated now! This is classic ringing/jangle guitar '60s pop with modern production, like that place R.E.M. took The Byrds on "Feeling Gravity's Pull" or "Maps and Legends." There're even similar small country-isms, like on "Last Winter." The songwriting scores little hook points as the attention to craft is strong (part of the '60s too many miss!), and the sorrow over lost ladies is palpable. - Jack Rabid, The Big Takeover
