Of Monsters and Men


The 2011 debut album from this Icelandic indie folk-pop band combined tricks culled from the Arcade Fire and the Decemberists but avoided the sprawl of either. Group singalongs are present, but only to mask a delicate and rewarding sensitivity. Hope you guys are having fun with the new Mumford & Sons album, but I’ll be off listening to this instead.
