Pullin’ ‘Tubes: Mums The Word

Last week in our CPR edition of Friday Mix Tape, Ryan via my recommendation dropped a tune from the Mumford & Sons – whom I described as “the UK’s answer to the Avett Brothers”. I thought I’d use today’s edition of Pullin’ ‘Tubes to more formally introduce you to the music of this four-piece act who have only been around for a handful of years. The London-based act plays a mix of traditional English inspired folk music, channeled through the high and lonesome sound of American bluegrass with influences from the Beard Rock movement of the last few years.

The results arrive at a unique blend of something that sounds like a mix of Gomez meets Incredible String Band meets The Avetts meets Bill Monroe.The band, who already has three self-produced EPs to their name, saw their  their full-length debut Sigh No More get its stateside release last week – which had previously landed in the UK iTunes Top Ten and yielded a number one single in Australia. Mumford & Sons made their network television debut when they stopped the Late Show to perform Little Lion Man…

Mumford & Sons will return to the States later this year with high profile appearances at the Bonnaroo and Sasquatch music festivals.
