Sunday Morning Music: Delta - Mumford and Sons

Does my love prefer the others,
Or does my love just make me feel good?
— Mumford and Sons

It’s been a minute since we have done a music post, but this is a good one. The best album release of 2018 in my opinion was Delta by Mumford and Sons. They have been a favorite band of ours for a long time, but the previous release of theirs fell a little bit flat to us. They are back.

Delta is a beautiful heartfelt and emotional journey of an album. It rocks loud at times, complex at times, and simple and quiet at others. It’s the first album to bring me to tears since True Sadness by the Avett Brothers, and it did it a couple of times.

Above is an excellent performance of the title track from their SNL appearance. But you should definitely check out the rest of the album at some point. Its perfect for a long drive or just sitting on your living room floor with the lights off and a drink in your hand.

Sunday Morning Music | The Milk Carton Kids

Good morning friends. I am back with some more Sunday morning music for you. This is a folk duo called The Milk Carton Kids. I first heard about them through a concert I watched on Showtime called Another Day, Another Time. It was music from and based around the movie Inside Llewyn Davis. The concert was produced by T-Bone Burnette and featured The Avett Brothers, Punch Brothers, Marcus Mumford, and a ton of other awesome people. The entire film is amazing and worth checking out. 

This is a clip from that film of The Milk Carton Kids. I was blown away the first time I heard them. They have such a beautiful sound and the harmonies are so tight that it is hard to tell who is singing what part. I dare you to watch this song and not be moved at least a little bit.
