Sigh No More – Mumford & Sons
After years of listening to digitally recorded music on CD and streaming, it appears that 12” vinyl Long Playing Records (LPs) are back in fashion.
Now, Mumford & Sons are a British Indie Folk Rock band who formed in 2007. The band combines both acoustic and electric instruments and write their own songs in the folk-rock style. The band have won many awards for their music and have released four albums of their music.
Sigh No More is their first main album and brings together tracks they played while on tour building up their name in the period 2009 to 2012.
Detailed information about Sigh No More – Mumford & Sons
There has been a lot of talk recently about whether the quality of 12” vinyl and its analogue music really stacks up against the mathematical perfection of digitally recorded music.
Before this question is answered we really need to sort out the parameters of the question. Digitally recorded music is handled electronically from the time of recording until it leaves the speakers in your home.
As such, there is far less to go wrong and the music can sound purer and with fewer hisses and clicks. Some people say that this is a good thing.
