Head Automatica - Beating Hearts Baby
Head Automatica is a rock band, formed by Glassjaw frontman Daryl Palumbo.
The beginnings of the band stemmed from singer Daryl Palumbo’s interests in the hip hop and Britpop genres. Palumbo felt that the material that was inspired by these genres did not fit into Glassjaw’s spectrum and so Head Automatica was created to showcase this.
The band’s debut album, Decadence, was released August 17, 2004. Charting on the Billboard Magazine top 200 albums and Top Heatseekers charts , the album was the brainchild of Palumbo, who was known better for his work in the hardcore music scene, and Dan ‘The Automator’ Nakamura, famous for his production work with groups including Gorillaz and Handsome Boy Modeling School. The two allegedly met at a party and worked on what later became the album. Palumbo then recruited the other current members as a touring group, and toured the United States , playing with bands like Interpol, The Rapture, Mogwai and The Used.
The band released their sophomore release, entitled Popaganda, on June 6, 2006. Whilst the debut album was produced by Nakamura, this album was instead produced by Howard Benson, who is best known for his involvements with alternative rock acts such as P.O.D. and Cold. With the departure of Nakamura, the band took a more organic, classic power-pop approach citing Squeeze and Elvis Costello as influences.
