Album Notes
"The HeartSleeves are living legends. True masters of the art of emotional music without being whiney, a feat thought of as impossible by most modern musicians. However the most interesting thing about The HeartSleeves is not their commitment to blending emotional lyrics with old-soul rock n roll. It’s the fact that they have been quietly regarded as one of Boston’s best kept secrets since early 2007.

The HeartSleeves are fully backed by two extremely solid releases (one past and one future). 2009 saw their first album titled “Dirt & Water”. This release caught the Boston scene completely off guard with its catchy hooks and deep lyrical content. I’m sure you’ve seen lesser bands crumble under pressure of having to match the power of their first release with their second. These guys have more than delivered with their sophomore full length “Peripheral People”. This album is 13 tracks of heart wrenching real life blues. “Sounds from real life”. This band lives true to their name, wearing their hearts on their sleeves through every minute." - Tyler Kershaw, UNregular Radio, February 2012

This album was a difficult two and a half year journey. We kept the HeartSleeve’s mission alive. With the help of old friends and new ones we searched for our identity, celebrated new love, remembered old passions, gave homage to our heroes, documented the fractures of our hearts and the tragedies of loss, one intentional and one desperately unfair. We kept our emotions exposed, not to be dramatic, but to be sane and sincere.. and to release.

The album features songs from our lives.

"Son of Lenny Bruce" is our search for our identity, sometimes thrown a curve ball by a well meaning lunch lady.

"Last Night" is the moment we realized that the sick feeling that we hadn't felt since our teenage life was proof that she captured our heart.

"Leslie" reminisces in the memory of the woman who showed us how to be a man.

"Rebecca" expresses the fears, dreams and aspirations of new and hopeful love and the foreshadowing excitement that spins us around.

"Patriots' Day" is our somber heartfelt Patriots drinking song. To soothe our pain and cherish our team.

"Birthday" celebrates the feeling of pure gratefulness to the universe that she exists.

"Peripheral People" is the paradigm shift when we realized it just wasn't enough.

"Dissolving" winces in the realization that no matter how much you love each other, sometimes its not good for either of you.

"Marriott Parking Lot" The healing from a late Sunday moment, in the desolate Burlington, MA hotel parking lot, where it ended.

"We Lost" is the promise of what we built, reflected on in the wreckage of what we broke.

"Mitch" is our tribute to our friend, the late Mitchell Heisman, who killed himself at Harvard on Yom Kippur, in search of the meaning of life.

"Haman" is our Purim anthem, a timely remembrance of overcoming evil through empowerment.

"Jessica Song" Professor, Mother, Singer, True Confidant... Big Sister. I will miss you till my final day.
