Mumford & Sons

I am extremely unqualified to talk about new music, due to the fact I pretty much exclusively listen to Hall & Oates, the Band, Neil Young and the Talking Heads. Despite this, I really believe the Mumford & Sons album "Sigh No More" is awesome. This was originally going to be a best albums of 2010 post, but I realized the only albums released in 2010 that I listened to were "Sigh No More" and the Drive-By Truckers 2010 album "The Big To-Do. Please let me know if you've got any recommendations for me.

Mumford & Sons "Sigh No More"

Favorite Songs on Album- Winter Winds, Roll Away Your Stone, White Blank Page.


  1. "Sigh No More" is definitely one of my most played 2010 albums, but here are a few more good ones for anyone with similar tastes to Mumford & Sons you should definitely check out, in order of 'awesome' (as used above.)

    Justin Townes Earle - Harlem River Blues [this ought to be required reading!]
    Vampire Weekend - Contra
    Avett Bros - Live, vol. 3
    Carolina Chocolate Drops - Genuine Negro Jig

    And for something a little more crazy/upbeat-
    Girl Talk - All Day
    OK Go - Of the Blue Colour of the Sky (one of my most played in 2010, only down here bc it's a different style than above)

  2. Three albums were in heavy rotation this year.

    Kings of Leon - Come Around Sundown
    Zac Brown Band - You Get What You Give
    The Avett Brothers - I and Love and You

    Those were my favorite albums that I listened to this past year. I think you'd enjoy them too even though one of them was technically released in 2009. I really enjoyed the Mumford and Sons album as well and was coincidentally listening to them as I as reading your post.

  3. Truth and Salvage Co. is a good new band that sounds a lot like The Band

  4. Awesome, thanks for the recommendations, I'll get listening.

  5. Mumford & Sons is a real solid cd. Every track on The Black Keys - Brothers Album is incredible
