GREAT STUFF: Mumford & Sons, Laura Marling, and Dharohar Project

Should I be surprised that the entire Mumford & Sons youtube channel is engrossingly entertaining? No. Am I? Yes. I had no idea the band was this globally-minded. I sort of assumed they were another folky group of guys with beards who live in Brooklyn. Which they probably are, but they also went to India and recorded an EP with Laura Marling and the traditional Indian folk group Dharohar Project. (It's only $3.89, buy it!) I like to believe that people (bands included) are more than the sum of their (its) parts, and these guys seem to serve as a testament to that very sentiment.
