We live in an autotune world. Nothing is as it seems in music production these days.
But there is a beautiful resurrection of music happening. Some band, like Mumford and Sons, have enjoyed huge commercial success with their emotional songs and heartfelt instrumentation and live performances. There are numerous bands coming to popularity who are extremely talented, raw, and honest (Of Monsters and Men, Passion Pit, The Lumineers, etc). It is refreshing to see as a musician.
Here is a group you may not have heard yet, but you need to know about them. They are called “The Lone Bellow.” They just put out an album and it is incredible. They sing and play together like they have know each other all their lives. Give the video a listen, then search for them on YouTube; they do not disappoint.
