they’ve been playing some amazing new songs at their live shows. this is one of the few i could find a decent record of, but i wouldn’t say it’s their best. they have one that could seriously be a U2 song where Mr. Mumford plays drums and the bass player puts down the upright for an electric. Wild.
see America? see what happens when you start voting for CRAP as your so called “american idol”? England, yes, ENGLAND, the country that we fought hard to escape from because they were a bunch of shmucks, now owns the best American bluegrass band of the year. Seriously???? I mean COME ON! We are a young country. Most of our culture is either stolen from our immigrant family’s homeland or manufactured by Disney and now, one of the few things we own we are letting someone else beat us at? What’s next? Will China create the best bbq in the world?
Hands down to Mumford & Sons. You’ve stolen our culture and one upped us. Congrats.
i’ve been kinda obsessed with the Mumford & Sons album this week. The songs are all rather formulaic and similar to eachother, but I love the formula. Mandolin, folky harmonies, ravaging acoustic guitar strumming. It’s just great music that’s somewhere between folk, bluegrass and rock. Think I might have to go see these guys when they come to LA next month.
Get “Sigh No More” by Mumford & Sons on Amazon mp3
it’s currently only $3.99… but that won’t last long
