It’s a good time to be a folk music fan. Ever since Fleet Foxes, and then British imports Mumford & Sons set the world on fire with catchy and organic folk anthems the music world has exploded. I’ve posted before about Boy & Bear but 2012 seems to be the year for The Lumineers, a Denver by way of New York based band that has been fueled by turmoil, a band member’s brother’s drug overdose, an expensive and unfruitful stint in New York city that left them headed to greener pastures. Lucky for us, they’ve managed to turn their pain into passion and a gift for songwriting. Check out “Big Parade” the eighth song off of their self-titled debut.

Big Parade-The Lumineers
