Album of the Month: Sigh No More – Mumford & Sons

Written by Derek Wilson on May 17th, 2011

If you’re looking for the hottest new music, you’ve come to the wrong place. This month I’d like to highlight a wonderful album that’s been staple of my folk music collection for some time. In 2009 the English folk band Mumford and Sons release their first full length album– Sigh No More. These fellas have been around since 2007 but they didn’t get the love they deserved until just last year. This four piece band of West Londoners have a common purpose “to make music that matters, without taking themselves too seriously.” a motto I couldn’t enjoy more and which really shines through in their music. Have a listen below and you’ll understand why these boys have started to make some noise in the folk music community.
