“They’re just great guys. It’s always good to see them and they are wonderful human beings and I think that all their success is deserved and earned and I can’t say enough good things about them.”—Bob Crawford of The Avett Brothers on being compared to Mumford & Sons. [via]
We fell for Mumford & Sons back in 2010 when they were West London folk scene-ers making a play for the U.S. we thought You Oughta Know. Sophomore LP Babel soon followed, giving them Grammy wins. So we flipped out when after three years of avid fandemonium, health scares and brilliant Unplugged performances, Mumford announced their “indefinite” [break].
But we have the cure for your sads that Mumford won’t appear on this years festival lineups. Palladia is airing their full Live From The Artists Den concert tonight at 9/8C. We’ve got a sneak of the washboard playing quartet rocking their hit “I Will Wait” to the Belasco Theater crowd in downtown Los Angeles. But before you press play, here are five things to watch for in the clip that will either make you an instant fan or further your obsession before the full show airs.
1. Marcus Mumford’s Lip Fuzz
2. Winston Marshall’s “I’m So Into It” Banjo Body Roll
3. This Really Intense Stare
4. Enthusiastic Impromptu Tambourine Pantomiming
5. Ted Dwane Walks, Plays String Bass, Sings And (Probably) Chews Gum At The Same Time
