Lately Listenings

When “I Will Wait” came out, I felt it in my bones that the rest of Mumford & Son’s new album would be a good one. Garrett bought the vinyl right when it came out and we took a nice long listen to the whole thing sprawled on the floor while reading the lyrics, which were handwritten in lovely cursive over the vinyl sleeve.

There were five that became fast favorites, and one of them is “Not With Haste.” So good! So great!

Do not let my fickle flesh go to waste
As it keeps my heart and soul in its place
And I will love with urgency but not with haste

We also recently watched Big Easy Express, and oooh! To have been able to see them at one of their stops! Edward Sharpe is a riot. This documentary will definitely make you want to jump on a train and own a loose thermal dress thing to run around barefoot in.
