subject i want a bon iver x mumford & sons cage battle NOW.
Justin Vernon wouldn't stand a CHANCE. m&sons would go straight for the jugular before you can sing-along "what might have been lost." yes, we're back to the stage with low visibility and high muddiness (Vil. Mentality) for the last thrashings of neo-folk bluegrass outfit mumford & sons. it looks more rave than relaxation in here, as easy listening loses its mind. i can really get behind that. the strobes are making me freak out a little bit, but it's the great kind of crazy for a band decked in victoriana and being shot by a backstage photog with a medium format camera. in breakdown of set closer, percussionist freaks out and kicks over cymbals before stumbling offstage. the remainder of the Sons devastate the outro. yesss! ok. so this ain't no fleet foxes fluff. i'm impressed.
