M. is for Music and Mumford and Sons!

30 Jul

My current music obsession of the week is Mumford and Sons!  This band is amazing they put a totally fresh new spin on folk music.  I know folk music it sounds bad and totally lame, All I can picture is Dutch clog dancers with wooden shoes stomping around as they sing and milk the goats.

This is what I picture......Not too modern! (Definitely Not Fist Pump Inducing)

 But, When I heard Mumford and Sons I was hooked. Mumford & Sons was formed in October 2007 by Marcus Mumford, Ben Lovett, Winston Marshall, and Ted Dwane.  They play everything guitar, drums, keyboard, bass, and they even rock out on the bango and mandolin. 

Sigh No More is their first studio album (It has 12 tracks and 7 Singles-Thats how good it is!)

Anyway, here is a link to one of my favorite songs of theirs! The Cave -Featuring a rocking bango solo!- Yeah, you can be excited!!

They proformed at the Grammy Awards and they were so into their music! Winston Rocks his hat all the way off his head!
