Album Notes
"...spend too much time connecting the musical dots on What Hearts and you’ll miss the things the group does best. Three-way, all-girl vocal harmonies are a tough beast to tame—especially when you’re laying down sparkling guitar-picking and fiddle-playing—and What Hearts fucking nails it. Proof of this can be found in opener “Salmon River Mouth,” on which frontwoman-guitarist Julie Vitells, guitarist Karin Nystrom and fiddler Sophie Vitells sing like train whistles over drummer Sarah Fennel’s minimal, clacking beat. Like much of Songs for Marjorie, the instrumentation here—while well-played, tastefully understated and gorgeously recorded—is really a trampoline beneath the singers’ feet. Julie Vitells writes twisting, descriptive lyrical vignettes, but it’s clear her real joy comes from writing gorgeous harmonies to underscore the best couplets. That’s also what keeps me listening, past all the comparisons, again and again. CASEY JARMAN." -Willamette Week

"On Songs for Marjorie, the new EP from What Hearts, the local trio is not shy about their appreciation for the olden days of country music. Thankfully they pay their dues without strained twang or lyrical content forced beneath the Mason-Dixon line. Instead, What Hearts—which began as a songwriting project for Julie Vitells—stacks the harmonies high while keeping the pace at a tempered shuffle throughout this six-song offering. It's not all front-porch folk strumming either; songs like the haunting "Last Year" and "Don't Leave Me Danny" have a slight Chelsea Girl feel to them. Regardless of where their influences take root, What Hearts have just established a mighty foundation to build upon. EAC" - The Portland Mercury
