AUDIO POST OF THE WEEK- Mumford and Sons: The Cave
1. They dress like farmers
2. The shot the video in Goa … which is a fucking awesome place ..and featured the song in Skins.. which is a fucking awesome series
3.The pride themselves in being a live band
”We basically consider the album like an advert for our live gigs. And I find it easier to sing songs over and over if they feel honest, if we feel passionate about them. That’s an important thing: we need to be able to feel what we sing every night, and believe it.”
4. The song makes me wanna get back in a shitty relationship ..
5. They don’t believe in religion but believe in sprituality
”a deliberately spiritual thing but deliberately not a religious thing. I think faith is something beautiful, and something real, and something universal, or it can be.”
Last week NPR had a fantastic podcast about the best opening tracks ever. I was motivated to find a record store and listen to a record just the way, in order that the artist wanted me to hear.
The record i listen to was PRINCE- Purple Rain. I highly recommend anyone to just plug in the songs in the same order ( on your ipod or watever). As you go through the songs you know he is not going to hold back- that he is going to break free and he doesn’t care about belonging to any genre.”Head bashing riffs, toe tapp’n beats, and tear jerking melodies collide here in a musical harmonic convergence.”
I wish we were in that era where an artist was allowed or even had the luxury to tell his story. I want to go on a journey of how an artist defines himself or how he changes through his/her musical career. I wish i didn’t live in this age which is musically just hollow. ITS HARD TO BE PART OF A GENERATION WHICH WILL NEVER SEE THE BIRTH OF A TRULY GREAT ARTIST. This is not because they do not exist but because our society has a screwed up understanding of talent or we might have sold our souls to the devil
