Mumford & Sons – Babel


Drawing influence from literary icons ranging from Shakespeare to Steinbeck, Mumford & Sons is the most visible contemporary band of their genre. Using markedly folk instruments like the banjo and mandolin, they have an interesting mix of bluegrass and indy rock among other things. Here’s the title track from their #1 album entitled “Babel.”

MS MR – Think of You

MS MR is a relatively new pop duo out of New York. They’re debut LP was only released on May 14 of this year. With their vintage sound and heartfelt lyrics, though, they’re well on their way to making their mark on the music industry. They’ve already gotten a foothold in Europe and show no signs of stopping any time soon.

Fucked Up – The Other Shoe

Ok I know this is an old song but hey I don’t care, I do what I want. Maybe just slightly repetitive but I have no trouble looking over that. I’m sure you’ve heard it before but if not then enjoy away. FYI Fucked Up won the 2009 Polaris Music Prize, seem to love destroying things, and also enjoy long walks on the beach.
