Honestly, I’m not a big movie fan. Like I will watch movies and stuff, but I’m not someone who will watch a movie over and over again. I do watch Across the Universe every time I see it on though. I adore Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. That might be my favorite. I think I’m going to watch it tonight. I’m a sucker for cute love stories. Movies are much better when you have someone to watch it with.
There’s something incredibly moving about Sigh No More, the newest release from London’s Mumford and Sons. Perhaps it’s the naturally gritty vocal delivery of singer Marcus Mumford. Maybe it’s the dark, lush melodies and the rich lyrical storytelling. Or is it the folky textures and multi-part harmonies? Whatever the case may be, Sigh No More is a mesmerizing record, full of romanticism and geniality.
Formed in December of 2007, Mumford and Sons quickly rose to prominence in the London folk scene, and has since captured the ears of listeners around the world. While the band enjoys success abroad, they’re relatively unknown in the states. With the release of Sigh No More this is sure to change, as the record is destined for “Best Of 2009” lists everywhere, including mine.
