    pretty much, basically hipster music with no balls and/or substance. also, why does it sound like the banjo player plays the same thing on every song?

        Bob Lefsetz loves 'em.

        FWIW, I enjoyed watching the streaming video of Flogging Molly at Coachella last night.

          Every banjo player plays the same thing on every song...what a **************** instrument, IMO.

            Every time a new generation becomes legally able to drink, a new (and ****************ty) genre of music is born.

            Lather, rinse, and repeat.

              Truly terrible but a useful band in the sense that as soon as somebody tells me how much they enjoy Mumford and Sons I quickly reach the conclusion we should discuss things other than music!

              I'm always suspicious of bands from London dressing like they've just walked off the set of a cowboy film...

                    I like them. The Cave is a really well-written song: good tension and dynamics, good vocal harmonies. I've got the album, and it's not a masterpiece... but hell, it's their first album and a lot of the songs are really solid. I think if anything, they've got potential- let's see if they disappear when this "folk revival" trend dies, or if they can transcend the stereotype and become something more. Could go either way, but regardless, it's a lot better than most of the crap that's filling up the pop charts.

                        Flogging Molly (and every "irish pub/punk" band) pretty much plays the same song over and over again so I'm afraid to see how these guys take it further towards mediocrity.

                          I think Mumford is more like the Waterboys. I was never a huge fan--I greatly preferred the energy of the Pogues.
