They are a band I have been listening a lot to over the past few months and it is also interesting that Emma likes them as well.

Winter Winds is an awesome song. Does anyone else like them here?

They were definitely a breath of fresh air when they released their album earlier this year. I like how chilled out they are. Where does Emma say she likes them?

I take it their name comes from Sanford and Son. Yes, I know that the lead dude's name is Mumford but as none of the other members are his sons I take it that the name is a bit tongue in cheek.

All their songs sound the same. Although some of their slow songs sound a lot like Mazzy Star.

They certainly seem a little different to a lot of the bands that are out there at the moment.

Emma said that she likes them in the Buzz Magazine interview HERE

First question on the last column.. 'What music do you listen to' which Emma answers 'I like Seasick Steve, Mumford & Sons, Rihanna and Lady Gaga'.... a bit of a mix there.

I think their name is just a play at family businesses... they sound like they could be an estate agents, or solicitors.

I definitely like their music. I'll admit, though, the first time I heard them, I thought John Popper had a side project going. Then I started picking up the accent.

They're amazing. I don't generally listen to that type of music because their more "folk", but I absolutely love them. :)
