Fresh off their first Saturday Night Live appearance and a pair of Grammy nominations, this rootsy, Denver-based trio continues riding the wave that has launched them from relative obscurity to the forefront of the Americana revival. Ironically, their hit indie anthem, "Ho Hey," off their self-titled debut, springs from the disillusionment of not making it in New York. Owing a clear debt to Mumford & Sons and other retro-populist Dust Bowl throwbacks, the Lumineers don't shed new light on the genre but succeed on the sheer strength of their lyricism, pathos, and storytelling, and they have the Tyrolean hats to match.
