I took a leap of faith and downloaded the Mumford & Sons CD - Sigh No More - solely because I've been told it's good and I would probably enjoy it.
Their sound is something I have definately been into recently and if I'm not mistaken I can hear a banjo in their first song (appropriately named after the name of their entire album) - Sigh No More.
After a little more searching - YES, I can hear it! The whole indie/country scene is everything I am about these days and I love love love LOVE their use of the banjo. This sound most definately is not for everyone, but it certainly is for me.
Combine country + indie folk - country twang = my new obsession
