I've listened through a few times already...and by a few I mean I have it on repeat at my desk today...all day.
With the exception of having to buy it twice because iTunes is being a big fat jerk (which hopefully will be remedied by my email conversation with Apple support people), I could not be more pleased with my choice.
Any who participated in last Friday's final day of the Asylum Party will know that Mumford & Sons are my favorite band - beyond favorite. I love them with everything in me. They are one of the few bands I can sit and listen to a whole CD all the way through and love every song.
Most bands I love tend to have that song (or two) I just don't like that much. But not Mumford. Those guys have magic in their fingers and vocal cords. Cords. Not chords...chords would be a funny pun.
I'm writing this blog because I want to avoid what's coming....
It's a busy time over here in the Asylum, or rather right outside of it. I'm excited for a pair of my closest friends to be getting married, but we all know it's going to be work to get to the actual ceremony. On top of that, a Murder Mystery night I wrote will be going on this weekend for a youth event. Can you catch the killer? Because the name of the game is murder...
A lot of prep work is going into both events, and both piggy back through the weekend. Do you ever reach those times when you have so much going on that your brain shuts down and you stop functioning? You have plenty to do, but no longer have the motivation to do it? That's where I am.
Ah, Marcus Mumford. He soothes my soul. I highly suggest listening to the album. These boys are fantastic.
When you have beautiful music and an overloaded schedule, I think the best thing to do is stop and appreciate the music. Eventually you have to take a deep breath, pick yourself up, and move forward with your to-do list. But for the time being, I'm going to mellow out to Mumford and focus solely on my day job. The rest of insanity can wait until the night.
Tell me about your busy schedules. Or tell me about the music you mellow out to. Either way, I'm here to listen :)
