Hello! This blog is honestly perfect. I have been looking for a specific interview, and can't seem to find it anywhere! that and the fact that tumblr hasn't been loading certain pages hasn't made me too happy hahah. I was just wondering if you could link me to the interview where Ted is really jet lagged, and is the "most misbehaved he has ever been". Where Marcus asks him how many new songs he'd like to play that night. hopefully this is making sense! Thank you so much!
It seems Mumford and Sons continue to enflame hearts with their music. Well said.
The small band from West London performed live on Palladia’s “Unplugged” with all of the raucous yet melancholy, andante yet foot-stomping songs that launched them into the musical-world’s eye in the past couple of years. Their old-time acoustic sound is coupled by their old-fashioned garb of muted-colored jackets or woolen vests, reminiscent of a humble peasantry. No doubt the religious influences that mark their passionate lyrics is reflected in their humility.
Mumford and Sons is skilled in voicing the inspiration they gain through their religion through music, for they have in a way translated an indescribable emotion into an understandable adaptation. I am not very religious myself but I surely respect such unadulterated passion. Should someone be so moved by their faith as to create a musical transcription, I have all the support in the world for your efforts. Mumford and Sons surely have this inspiration and it is definitely powerful.
It isn’t often that I get goosebumps from music, but when I do I know that it is quite a moving composition. Usually it is the works of Brahms or Bach or Beethoven that move in such a way, powerful in their bowed instruments and their intricate lines of music. But Mumford and Sons influence these goosebumps of mine in a much different way. They speak to a lower-standard of musicality. A music created through a passion and not an assemblage of notes and chordal runs. Surely this is a more genuine expression of pure soul.
My note on Mumford and Sons is going to be limited. I haven’t much to say about a band that is meant to be felt, but I leave with this last point. Mumford and Sons, its band members Marcus Mumford, Country Winston, Ben Lovett, and Ted Dwane, have a message they wish to deliver and an emotion they want to instill and they produce an encompassing voice to such an indescribable phenomenon. For that, I find great inspiration. It’s been a pleasure.
I’m from Canada too and it works here! L xxx
