Mumford & Sons, Sigh No More
Music Math: Peter Gabriel + the soundtrack to O Brother Where Art Thou?
Best Tracks: “The Cave,” “Little Lion Man,” “Winter Winds”
Representative Lyrics: “I will hold on hope / and I will let you choke / on the noose around your neck”
Notes: I love this quirky little album of homages to bluegrass music. Plucky banjos, slappy basses, and strummy guitars dominate along with beautiful harmonies in the vocals.
Beau’s Critique: “I don’t like this and he’s ugly. I feel like I’m in Ireland or something.”
