    Indie folk music is still in fashion?

    I love my folk music but I have trouble liking Mumford and Sons. Their tunes are a bit chanty for me - a bit like the Levellers on a popular day. On a less reasonable point, their lead singer reminds me of John Terry. Any endearment goes down the plughole, daft I know.

    If you do like them though you should definitely watch the film, Big Easy Express. The film follows a concert tour across America with Mumford & Sons, Old Crow Medicine Show and Edward Sharpe and the magnetic zeros. The tour is by this great aluminum train called the Zephyr. They play the gigs then play themselves silly onboard through the nights.

    If this is a recommendation thread I'd like to hear others favourites. Mine from last year was Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band's Between the Ditches and that Geordie lass Beth Jeans Houghton. A bit Florence and the Toaster but she can sing a mile better.

    If anyone vaguely likes folk, they should go and see Bellowhead. Don't listen to an album, they're not so good. Just see them live.

    Bellowhead remind me of the Levellers. Not a good thing imo.

    The difference, I think you'll find, is that the Levellers were rubbish.

    First time I heard Mumford & Sons I thought it must be the Avett Brothers, so...

    I prefer Welsh Psychfolk.
    I'll probably tune into the Brit Awards to catch Mumfords though

    I thought I liked Mumford and sons at first and the more I listened the more I came to not liking them. Thanks for creating this thread though as there are some good recommendations that I didn't know of.
    I can recommend King Charles and Johnny Flynn.

    Alabama Shakes.  Not a British group bit lovely guitar music and the singer has a great voice.

    Give Iron & Wine a listen (Our Endless Numbered Days and Woman King EP are both stunning).

    If Mumford and Sins weren't terrible they'd probably sound a bit like Beirut, so maybe you'll like them.
  • Deleted user 16 January 2013 08:08:59
    Some good recommendations thanks, will get an album or two in hmv today.

    Is it bad that I've never heard of a single band mentioned in the thread?

    What about going back in time a bit and trying some of The Byrds?
    Maybe that doesn't count as folk..
    Pepsipoppet, I hope you can look past your apparent dislike of me, this is a serious suggestion.

    Not as nice as I used to be

    And if Beirut were all gypsies, they'd probably sound like Devotchka, so maybe you'll like them too.

    I don't mind Mumford and Sons on an individual song basis, but one of the girls in the office is a massive fan and if she is playing an album or something it gets seriously irritating.

    I find it very difficult to distinguish between songs a lot of the time as well, they seem awfully samey.

    They sound like they look, and they look constipated.

    That sort of thing? Hmm, they used to be a bit more folky than the stuff online.

    Try My Morning Jacket (It Still Moves is a great album), M Ward, Richmond Fontaine, and that kind of thing.

    4 things better than John Terry;

    King Post Kitsch - Fante's Last Stand - one bloke band from Glasgow electro/folk. Cracking animated video too.

    Rev. Peyton - Devils look like Angels.

    Edward Sharpe & Magnetic Zeroes - Kisses over Babylon

    The Climbers - Good Ship and Bookshop Folk - Brighton 'supergroup'.

    I love these. I don't mind Mumford and Sons either, my daughter plays it a lot, so I don't really have a choice :D

    Not so much folky but I listened to Gomez - Liquid Skin again this morning. What a lovely album.
