Sigh No More Mumford & Sons are Here

If you are one of the few that haven’t heard of a band out of England called Mumford & Sons it’s time to crawl out of your cave and get in the now.  Mumford & Sons is in the process of wrapping up a sold out tour of Eastern North America.  Obviously they didn’t stop in Halifax because Halifax focuses it’s concert efforts on attracting the likes of Colin James and Burton Cummings cover bands.  However, Mumford & Sons did make a stop in Toronto on the weekend and all the reviews I’ve read suggest the show at Sound Academy was nothing short of unreal.  In classic Canadian inferiority complex style one review suggested that Mumford & Sons was the English equivalent of Great Big Sea.  This statement would hold true if Mumford & Sons sounded like a gay Christian band with newfie accents that sucked, but they don’t so the comparison is bunk.  Mumford & Sons stopped by the 102.1 Edge studio while in Toronto to play a couple tunes which apparently created a greater buzz then when U2 stopped by a couple of years ago.

If you haven’t had a chance to listen to any of Mumford & Sons tracks go download the album for like 9 bucks.  It’s called Sigh No More and will explore all your emotions except the desire to be a juice monkey or douche bag.  Here’s a sample from their session at the Edge studio.
