It was not your fault

but mine

it was your heart on the line

I really fucked it up this time

didn’t I my dear

didn’t I my


~ Mumford & Sons

An apt song for anyone with a heart—which is to say a broken heart.

Mumford’s look at 4 minutes even is as powerful as anything I’ve ever seen in a Kurosawa film.

I also love the moment, a minute earlier, when, his hands full, he wipes the sweat off his face and out of his eyes on his bandmate’s shoulder.

    This band has become one of my favorites in the last few months.

    You guys should also do a write-up your local talented musicians in Nederland, Elephant Revival. They have earned they're way into my playlist right beside Mumford & Sons. They also do magical things to my ears!
