Monday’s Cover : England by Mumford and Sons

Mumford and Sons : England (originally by The National)

As the Marcus Mumford said in an interview, they are obsessed with the song but don’t know if they should be offended or not by it.  Well thank god they weren’t offended enough for this amazing cover.  The National flowy tune is a perfect foil for the Mumford boys’ boot stomping British folk twist, with the delicate opening stanzas and verses ceding way to a more powerful driving climax that gets that floor drum really pulsing.  Overall it is a charming reminder of the hip hop adage of “game respecting game”.
