Mumford & Sons dropped the audio for their new song “I Will Wait” which is on their new album called Babe! which will be released September 24th on Glassnote Records.

Is this the band that all the Mumford & Sons and The Civil Wars fans will be talking about by the end of summer? Certain tastemakersseem to think so and if this song is any indication as to what the band’s full length (due in July) sounds like, it’s very possible that 2012 is the year of Milo Greene.
College kids and minivan driving soccer moms (of which my wife is one) eat up this kind of music, stuff that you don’t hear on the “pop” stations but a far cry from the “alternative rock” of my college days (early ’90s). The pretty male/female vocals, the jangly interplay between acoustic and electric guitars and the strong close (at least on “1957″, which sounds nothing like a song from that year) make Milo Greene instantly appealing and worthy of keeping your eyes and ears on.

I don’t know that I can actually pinpoint the moment I first heard of Laura Marling, but I can say that she has had a strong presence on my favorites playlist for a good two years now. She may be perceived in the States as being a new face on the scene because she is just now out on a solo headlining tour, but just two years ago Mumford & Sons were her tour support on a co-headlined tour with Johnny Flynn.
Marling’s new record I Speak Because I Can was released on April 6th via Virgin Records. She hits the stage on Wednesday at the Wexner Center’s Black Box with friends Smoke Fairies and Pete Roe. Tickets here.
