Mumford & Sons – Sigh No More – 2009

July 29, 2010

I don’t honestly know where to start with this one. Sigh No More came out in late 2009, and the first time I got to hear them was a few months later. The song was “Little Lion Man,” one of the more popular tracks off of the album. It blew my mind. The personal nature of the lyrics, along with the driving folky layering of acoustic guitar and banjo and stand up bass, had me captivated. I quickly purchased the entire album, and was taken back. It is a worship album, at its heart, full of spiritual lyrics, other-worldly refrains, and a sense that lead singer Marcus Mumford feels every word, every dramatic bridge, every chord change, deep down in his Irish soul. The quartet is currently receiving praise and recognition across the globe, and will no doubt be an Indie folk powerhouse for some time to come. Have a listen:
