Artist of the Week: Mumford & Sons

This week, we can't stop spinning Mumford & Sons Sigh No More. Folksy, robust, and ragged, with lyrics that tug at your heartstrings and demand a second listen, Marcus Mumford and his band are already a huge success across the pond in their native London, and are quickly gaining fans in the States. Infusing history with heart, songs like "White Blank Page" and "Dust Bowl Dance" charm listeners with catchy choruses, swelling harmonies, and redemptive builds. They've just been added to the Bonnaroo lineup for June, which might be enough to tempt us into shelling out the dough for tickets...

Check out the official video and the lovely harmonies of "Little Lion Man," the album's single:
