Mumford and Sons, Laura Marling and the Dharohar Project

23 Feb

I found this 4-song collaboration on iTunes, and delighted to find more Mumford and Sons material to listen to, I promptly bought it. I had heard of Laura Marling before, mostly because of her other collaborations with Mumford and Sons and Johnny Flynn (it’s nice to have your favorite artists also be friends who tour together on the regular- like Billy Joel and Elton John).

These particular songs have a little twist- a group of Indian musicians called the Dharohar Project. This is the English folk-revival, postcolonial REMIX, and I mostly love it. Every now and then I get a hint of dischord where I’m not sure if it sounds awful or awesome- but it’s definitely a cool experiment. Good stuff. Really good stuff.

Rolling Stone will back me up on that:
