Song of the Day 3: Mumford & Sons - Little Lion Man

The moment that Mumford & Sons' lead single, "Little Lion Man", hit the radio, there has been an almost constant buzz surrounding them. Garnering the attention of record labels around the globe and hitting the number one spot on several stations, they have literally blown up in the music world with their attempted resurrection of classic folk techniques. "Little Lion Man" is the most prominent and well known track on their debut LP, Sigh No More, and for good reason. It is ridiculously catchy. Lead man Marcus Mumford (for which the band is named) has a wonderful voice for the folk style he's attempting to pull off - and mixed with the banjo and madolin, they succeed with a surprising authenticity. Sure, it didn't need any more hype, but I sort of have a soft spot for catchy music.
