MusicWednesday: The Lumineers

I often find myself sitting in front of the TV with nothing I really care to watch. When that happens I will turn the channel to one of the two channels on my TV that constantly play country music videos.

Recently, after doing exactly that I was introduced to "Ho Hey" by The Lumineers. I was intrigued enough by this song to head over to spotify and check out the rest of their album. I enjoyed the album. They are a bit Americana/folksy sounding, a la Mumford And Sons or The Avett Brothers (yes I know that Mumford and Sons are not American and I am therefore relating them to The Lumineers folk sound). This is super random, but if you liked Paul McDonald from American Idol a couple seasons back... You will probably like The Lumineers.
Sidenote- I met Paul (and some other guys from that season of Idol) and he sang for me and my two friends... That guy had one of the most unique voices I have ever heard. It was amazing.

"Classy Girls" is probably my favorite song on the album. I also enjoy "Stubborn Love" and "Big Parade" but the whole album is definitely worth a listen!

P.S. If you don't remember Paul McDonald here is a reminder. He and his wife, Nikki Reed, did a song together "Now That I've Found You". It's not my favorite thing I've ever heard him do (and I still think it's really weird that he married Nikki Reed so quickly!) but you can definitely still hear his unique voice in it.
