[caption id="attachment_49403" align="alignleft" width="385" caption="Mumford & Sons"][/caption] [lastfm]Mumford & Sons[/lastfm] conquered the US last year with stops at every major festival and loads of club dates supporting their debut album Sigh No More. This is honest music, the kind that marries pretty harmonies and great folk/rock/bluegrass/country chops with loads of personality. “Little Lion Man” brings to mind [lastfm]Avett Brothers[/lastfm] and is, at least in its raw form, decidedly not radio-friendly due to explicit language (an edited version is below if you want to hear it 'clean'). The album, produced by Markus Dravs ([lastfm]Arcade Fire[/lastfm]), debuted in the U.S. at No. 1 on Billboard’s March 6 Folk Chart.

Mumford & Sons are also tapped to perform at a special Grammy Awards pre-party Feb. 12 at The GRAMMY Museum at L.A. Live, hosted by CBS Radio LA and CBS Interactive Music. And this only weeks after landing the Number 2 spot on Last.fm's Best of 2010. So whether or not they take home a statue (or two) the following night, this London quartet has already earned tremendous success and is still trending upward.
