New Mumford & Sons tune of the day

We here at Cavaado love Mumford & Sons, so it we are pretty pumped to hear this new Mumford tune! It is a little different and obviously not the best recording, but it sounds pretty promising!


Belle Brigade

Arguably one of my top picks from 2011 so far is Belle Brigade’s self-titled album. It’s got a healthy mix of alt. country, Americana/roots with a touch of some great mid-tempo alt. rock breakouts. “Where Not to Look for Freedom,” “Lonely, Lonely,” and “Losers” are just a few key tracks from this all-around stellar album. This is right up your alley if you enjoy the sweet sounds of well-known acts like Avett Bros. and Mumford & Sons. And if you like J.J. Cale, treat your ears to “Lucky Guy.”

Got any top picks from 2011 we should know about?


White Denim – Drug

I’ve found myself enjoying White Denim’s eclectic style more and more with each listen. Their sound is hard to pinpoint with precision but they tend to have heavy jazz and psychedelic influences scattered throughout their songs. They usually manage to place a poppy hook within the madness, however. Below is the official video for “Drug,” the first single off their upcoming release “D.”

The song itself bit more straightforward and easier to listen to than their previous works but the video is as trippy as anything you’ve seen. It’s a solid folk rockish, trippy tune that is vaguely reminiscent of Wilco’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot days.

If you like this song and want to hear more before “D” comes out, you can download their previous release “Last Day of Summer” for free on their website ( “Champ” is one my favorite tracks off that record.

What do you think? Does this make you excited for their upcoming release?
