interview

#1

No i’ve not joined The Lumineers (yet) but I did get to meet them for DiS back in November:

My perception going in is that most people had written this band off because they were kicking about at the same time as Mumford & Sons, but their second album last year was really great, but received little to no fanfare. Any particularly strong thoughts or feelings towards them?


#2

They always make me think of this


#3

hahaha I didn’t get that joke at the time :smiley:


#4

that one song they had wasn’t very good


#5

yeah well, that was one song on their first album, the most recent album is so much better


#6

hey ho


#7

Listening now as even though I associate them with all that is wrong with the world, I trust you if you say the new one has something more to it.

Track one and it’s not grabbing me. Which ones are good?


#8

Cleopatra, Angela, Long Way From Home, My Eyes/Patience… I would say so it’s worth repeated listens (it’s not very long only 35 mins) mind


#9

Just had a listen

It’s ok - the style is kinda right up my street but something isn’t quite gelling (yet)

Sounds a bit like Josh Ritter (who i love) but not quite as good.


#10

I would give it a couple listens, it totally grew on me
