Four British men returning shook the music world. They are not The Beatles. Four young men with bizarre sexy outfit plays folk-rock music in a marvelous way. Consists of Marcus Mumford, Ted Dwane, Ben Lovett, Winston Marshall, and they call themselves Mumford & Sons.
They can play folk, even better than Americans in general. Issued 2 new albums, both directly won ‘Album of the Year’ in two different games. The first album ‘Sigh No More’ (2009) debuted at the BRIT Awards 2011, and second album ‘Babel (2012) has recently rocked the Grammy Awards. A record in the history of folk-rock music.
Initially, ‘Babel‘ is a faster paced, more powerful, with a melody that is more popular they have committed contempt of folk music. But, some others think that ‘Babel‘ a higher achievement than ‘Sigh No More’. Ranging from being the fastest selling album in the UK (over 159,000 albums in its first week), became the best-selling album sales of 600 thousand pieces scored CD was released the first week in America, to a peak when it climbed to the podium to receive Grammy Cup.
Indeed, it’s not provide the predicate ‘Album of The Year’ on ‘Babel‘. Mumford & Sons combines elements of folk rock, melodic pop, gospel lyrics with an independent spirit who formed a new musical expression into this album. And, one thing that can be emulated from them is their attitude in music. Do not care about people’s views on what music they play, or the clothes they wear. Importantly, the result is this beautiful folk never before.
