Mumford And Sons - "The Cave" (Acoustic Bookshop Sessions)

Sigh no more! My much-anticipated Mumford and Sons show is this week and I am beyond excited to finally see these Brits get their banjo on, even if it's at the less-than-intimate NYC monstrosity otherwise known as Terminal 5 (a venue that seriously needs to accidentally burn down already, as I've requested many moons ago). QuickCrit is no stranger to loving Mumford hard this year, so where's the harm in gushing a little more? I serendipitously stumbled upon some baller acoustic versions of M&S playing their tracks at Treadwell's Bookshop in London. Oh please, please, please play similarly stripped-down versions at T5 and maybe I'll refrain from jig dancing. They even called this performance the "Bookshop Sessions." Flawless acoustic Mumford... in a bookshop? Blimey! I think I just had a tiny musical orgasm.

"Little Lion Man" sounds great too, no surprise there.

I know it's only November, but I'm fairly certain The Cave's chorus is my favorite of 2010:

And I will hold on hope
And I won't let you choke
On the noose around your neck
And I'll find strength in pain
And I will change my ways
I'll know my name as it's called again
