NEW MUSIC UPDATE: MUMFORD EXPLAINS ‘DOOM FOLK’
Some thought ‘doom folk’ was a crafty new music genre created by Mumford & Sons to describe their sophomore album. Marcus Mumford elaborated recently during an interview with NME. “That was a joke to an American journalist who didn’t understand the concept of sarcasm.” Oh those Brits and their sarcasm!
