Sigh No More’: 2010 Barclay Card Mercury Prize – An Album of The Year

By now, you will have no doubt correctly guessed Mumford HQ to be the quintessential English gent; born in a bowler hat and raised on an Oxford-weave estate. I take pride in my tea and strides in my whites. I reject advances in the modern age: I fix my ties with Windsor knots and my woes with stoical silence. I take even further pride in my ability to obsess-to-the-point-of-lunacy (indeed, deviancy) about the weather. Come rain or shine, there I be found, before flickering screen, waiting patiently (naturally) for the Ceefax weather update.
I measure my life not in days, weeks, months or years, but in kilopascals, watts, centigrades and fahrenheits. The markers on my journey to the grave are laid in inches not memories. Inches of mercury…

Roasty toasty for realzy steezy, Mumford & Sons have been shortlisted for the Mercury Music Prize!!
