Mumford & Sons didn’t appear out of nowhere. I feel like people here are giving them shit, as if they were created & stylized out of a major label test-tube. Anybody can read a wikipedia page to get an idea of where they came from… try it!
Its also not a terrible thing when a band hits with a mainstream record that isn’t quite awful. I can’t say I’m a Killers fan, but that first record was pop music that nobody should be ashamed to listen to. I’d equate the first Mumford & Sons record to that – a big hit that is quality enough that you shouldn’t discourage a musically-taste challenged friend from embracing. It could open new doors…
