Mumford & Sons have lots of fans (@ Terminal 5)
Mumford and Sons

"It reminded me very much of what it was like being in a band starting out. They are on a great roll at the moment as you hear on the track. That's what it was like with The Kinks when we started out doing single after single. You get this weird light around you that makes you work in a certain way." - [Ray Davies on Mumford & Sons]
By the looks of the photos, the light was just about normal at Terminal 5 last night, 11/16 - at Mumford & Sons's 2nd of two sold out, headlining shows at the massive venue with their tourmates Cadillac Sky and King Charles (who plays NYC again tonight and tomorrow).

After the show, all three bands headed to an invite-only afterparty at Rockwood Music Hall where they all ended up playing again (but all together as one band) to the lucky, considering how big Mumford is now, few who were in attendance. Video from the intimate aftershow is below.

In related news, there's a Mumford & Sons, Laura Marling and Dharohar Project collaborative four-song EP on the way, though not as quickly in all formats as previously planned:

"So there's been a bit of juggling on the physical release front - there's good news and not as good news (we're a cup half full kinda web dweller). The good news is - the physical version of the EP will in fact be in the form of a vinyl. The not such good news is that the vinyl will be coming in the new year as opposed to 7th December (when the digital version will be available from). We will keep you updated on the release date and retail info as soon as we hear word..."
And speaking of new releases by Laura Marling (remember when Mumford & Sons opened for her at a NYC show?), Jack White's Third Man Records recently put out something special...
"20-year old English folk star Laura Marling contributes to our Blue Series of releases.

For her recording Laura Marling chose two incredible songs and does them heavenly justice: Jackson C Frank's "Blues Run The Game" and Neil Young's "The Needle And The Damage Done". The exclusive 7" includes her version of "Blues Run The Game" as the A side, backed with "The Needle And The Dam"

Order the 7" via Third Man Records. Laura's only upcoming dates are in the UK at the moment.

Mumford and Sons recorded a track with Ray Davies for his new Kinks cover album (or whatever you want to call it). (hence the quote at the beginning of this post)

More pictures of all three bands from the 2nd show at Terminal 5, with some videos from that show and from the one at Rockwood Music Hall, and Mumford's T5 setlist, below...

I just thought they were retarded Irish folk singers.

mehmford...joking. I think they're pretty solid.

They are wonderful live & connect with their audience in a real way. Cannot wait until they return to the US again!

This band has been playing the same show with the same setlist since last year. Even their encore is the same. Not to mention their lyrics are awful. They're like a folk version of the backstreet boys.

@ 548. He was quoting Mark E. Smith (as implied by his posting name)....The real losers? Me and the Mark E. Smith @ 5:45 for knowing that.

Wow...I remember seeing Mumford and Sons at Cameo on N. 6th on a pre-SXSW showcase bill just a few years ago. I can't believe they're this big already.

Posted by anonypus | November 17, 2010 6:08 PM

This album was so dull, every song sounded exactly the same. AND the whole Christian thing...how the fuck are these guys big?

I love how haters come out as soon as a band finds success. Comparing them to Backstreet Boys is pathetic really.

Has anyone been to the Mumford and Sons Hummus Shack over on Avenue B?

it can't be good for a band whose singer sounds like DAVE MATTHEWS!

Posted by Anonymous | November 17, 2010 7:11 PM

Like his voice or not, Dave Matthews, and this guy, can sing better than 90% of the shitty indie bands that come out of Brooklyn and are endorsed on this site and pitchfork.

They covered Wagon Wheel? (Old Crow Medicine Show). I f'ing love that song. That's awesome.

Posted by Kurt C | November 17, 2010 7:48 PM

is sigh no more their only album? that's pretty radical growth, considering that just came out earlier this year. wow. hope to catch them at a proper venue sooner than later, i don't do T5.

This band kinda sounds like a not-as-good Frightened Rabbit

Posted by Anonymous | November 17, 2010 8:08 PM

They're on the same label as Phoenix... might have something to do w/ their success i bet

Posted by Anonymous | November 17, 2010 8:30 PM

I was a doubter until I saw them live in Atlanta a couple of weeks back. They create a really fantastic vibe live. Y'all be sippin' too much haterade.

Posted by Matthew | November 17, 2010 9:59 PM

they are pretty amazing live. and considering they only have one album complaining about the same setlist is pretty dumb.

Posted by Blake | November 17, 2010 10:36 PM

I remember seeing them live a year ago at the Mercury Lounge during CMJ. That's coming a long way in a short time.

That is one sneaky set list photo. Great set of pics.

These guys are really full of love, connect with the crowd, have wonderful dirges, and know how to play thee old instruments.

King Charles is dapper.

Absolutely amazing night. T5 for once didn't sound absolutely awful, and the Rockwood aftershow was really special. They were having the time of their life up there and the vibe was contagious.

Oh, and what's the BFD if they're Christian? The songs are solid and universally relate-able.

Did anyone spot David Bowie in the audience? I can't see him in the pics, but he was there!
