As I end The Revolution for the day (I know, try to hold it together and savor what I could conjure up this morning) I will leave you with some Mumford & Sons.
Just remember… “I Gave You All”.
They really need a new album and STAT because I just keep posting the same songs over and over and though that’s okay for our ears, our hearts want something new to love.
(I’m like a poet sometimes)
This is one of the greatest Mum & Sons videos I’ve ever seen. They are just out of puberty, don’t know how to use hair gel, and still write romantic songs about love but in a really smart way.
That’s it. It’s official. I’m buying a mandolin.
I’m watching Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 1 at my parents house as I moved The Revolution offices there this weekend and I just need to say that this movie is intense. Voldermort is such a bastard. Such a jerk!
Anyway, Mumford & Sons (all accompanied with their noses) played a show (or a few shows) in Canada. In between the maple syrup drinking contests and Justin Bieber fan tours, the guys put on great shows and here are some videos, because they are too brilliant not to share with the world. Seriously. They are so good it hurts me.
The foot stomping in “Roll Away Your Stone” at the 3:24 mark, shakes my soul.
“Below My Feet”
“White Blank Page”
“Nothing Is Written”
“Dust Bowl Dance”
“After The Storm”
“Little Lion Man”
The vest is spectacular.
Those Canadians get Justin Bieber and a bunch of Mumford & Sons shows. Lucky.
It’s Saturday. And its way to early on Saturday to be functioning at all, so that means I can do whatever I want.
And as of now, I choose to post a video of Mumford & Sons’ “Dust Bowl Dance”. This live version is so awesome, it hurts. They are the most talented people I have ever heard in my life. I will never not think that, so don’t even try to throw other names out into the mix.
I’m going to free museum day… so you enjoy your Saturday.
The first 3 minutes of this interview is what I want you to hear, because it’s funny and things are running slowly in pop culture on this fine Thursday morning.
So, listen to the funny part, but then listen to the rest.
True life: I hate John Steinbeck and East Of Eden. During my Junior year in high school, I wrote my term paper on East Of Eden and about 3 months into this project I couldn’t even get past the 4th chapter, so I watched the movie instead. We had 8 months to write our term paper and by the 6th, I was ready to kill anyone who brought up Steinbeck. Never again will I read a Steinbeck book.
Anyway, here is that Vampire Weekend “Cousin” cover that they speak of. Just to spice up this post because I really just wanted to talk about “white boy shit” and then I told a boring story about my 11th grade term paper.
That’s honestly all this is. I can’t think of anything funny about it… I just wanted to post this video of the lads singing “Timshel” because 1) it’s a great song and 2) a revolution-er told me they loved this song.
Okay. Okay…. and it’s because that mustache is so funny to me. It almost makes me wish I was a boy so I could grow a ‘stache like that. Almost.
…. and a little bit of Mumford & Sons.
Never have Vespas and ridiculous, cream-colored suits looked so good.
And this song/video is nominated for an MTV VMA Best Rock Video moonman. Don’t ever say this blog is not educational.
It’s Sunday and since I don’t go to church, I should just post the greatest song ever.
And because I try to be even more inappropriate on Sunday’s… this is “The Cave” with a little racism towards banjos, Europeans, the French, Canada and America, but not from my mouth, so it’s okay.
See? You weren’t even offended by that. And you laughed if you were French or Canadian…. and you probably peed your pants if your French-Canadian.
They are quite the charmers.
I don’t know where or what that festival is… but its new Mumford & Sons performances, so I’m down with it.
I really wish the crowd wasn’t chanting along like it was a soccer match, but you get the idea.
And now, for the best song. EVER.
