Mumford and Sons – Below My Feet

Mumford and Sons have just released their sophomore album, Babel, yesterday as follow up to their wildly successful album Sigh No More released back in 2010.  Though they are only on their 2nd album these guys are already legendary,  bringing an original sound that is now imitated by many but successfully pulled off by few.  Their new release features much of their same signature sound, with dynamic buildups and drop offs that keep the listener on a musical roller coaster.  This time around, they’ve taken that recipe for success and spiced it up even more, adding even more killer harmonies and really highlighting the peripheral instruments like keys and banjo.  Here’s one of two performances from this past week on SNL. Whoever thought music could be created by actually playing instruments, singing with no technological interference, and harmonizing with your fellow man?  Brilliant.
