This post should prove to be a genuine crowd pleaser: Yes, it is officially confirmed that, English folk-rockers, Mumford & Sons has completed their follow-up album to the double grammy-nominated Sigh No More.
Rather than write a long-winded, boring review, I think perhaps I’ll start a long-running series of simpler posts. What I’m Listening to Today: Gangstagrass: Rappalachia. The New York based genre-benders have released their fascinating sophomore album this year. While I don’t typically dabble in rap, these guys make it amazing. Enjoy.
The long brisk Alston night culminated in K Ishibashi sitting alone, completely exhausted, just outside the Harvard Ave & Commonwealth bus shelter.
