Will got me a Mumford and Sons CD for Christmas, which was fantastic because I have been a huge M&S fan ever since I saw them three or four times last year at SXSW.  Here is their video for their single “Little Lion Man.” 

When I was in high school, I really wanted to play the banjo, but I had too many other instruments on my plate (sax, clarinet, accordion, violin, bassoon, & flute) to ever really give it much time.  These guys (or more specifically, the banjo/mandolinjo-playing guy) make me remember why I wanted to play it in the first place.  Their 4-part harmonies and blistering picking are kick-ass in so many ways.
