"Mumford & Sons won the award for International Achievement. Following a video tribute to the band, frontman Marcus Mumford accepted the gong, joking: ‘That felt a bit like a fucking obituary, but thank you.’ He added that the band were currently ‘hibernating’."

This Live From The Artists Den Performance Will Make You Obsessed With Mumford & Sons ]

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

"I could see it. I could see the malice in his eye. I could see it all unfolding. I could see the cogs working and I could see that just a small little Brit Award that might fit on your mantlepiece wasn’t enough, and he wanted the seven foot high monumental Brit Award, and so he took it. Yeah. He just had it. He really livened things up."

"I had breakfast with T Bone [Burnett] in L.A. and we’d met at the GRAMMYs the year before and I made it quite clear to him that he was my hero and, uh, and we had an agreement that if we were ever involved in anything that the other wanted to be involved in as well that we would hit each other up. I heard about this movie, so I said, ‘Can I come make your tea?’"
