The atmosphere at Music Hall Of Williamsburg last night was thick; like a down blanket, or a warm piece of cake, or any number of your favorite comfortable things (pick one). That can probably be attributed to the lush harmonies and textures of Mumford and Sons
, a group of musicians (and not a family owned apothecary) who knocked several out of the park during their sold-out show at Music Hall Of Williamsburg. From the schizophrenic instrument swaps to the bass-drum heavy foot-stomping tunes, Mumford and Sons produce a slice of music that is both wonderful and intrinsically dashing... and our cameras will prove it.
Their debut record, Sigh No More
was panned in a big #Pitchfail
a few months ago, but a sold-out crowd chanting every word, not to mention the recurring cries of "Mumford" (in the band's absence) would suggest that the band is far from simply being "in the costume business" in "threadbare clothes". Sure they wore a few coordinated vests, but as they told me before the show, it isn't a game of dress-up. Quote the band: "we're just British". Add charming to the list, and humanizing; the band is as humble as their lyricism, which seems to effortlessly function as a empathetic connection to the audience. I harp on sincerity as the main ingredient in successful music, and they deliver to your door, ON TIME. The soaring crescendos of "White Blank Page", or the fever of "Little Lion Man", for example, swell the spirit and stir the senses. It's tough to claim such songs as detached or anonymous, especially with a room full of people connecting and projecting them onto their own lives.
Sigh No More
is out in the US now on Glassnote Records. Check out some pictures from the high energy show, and stay tuned for the full concert. -joe
