Riff: Mumford & Sons – “I Will Wait”

Aug 13, 2012

Raise my hands/Paint my spirit gold

from I Will Wait lyrics by Mumford & Sons

Bluegrass shouldn’t be so…composed. It shouldn’t be tailored or produced or free of grit and grease and grime. But if it is, it may as well be epic, it may as well play at ageless poetic themes, and it may as well refuse any attempts to stop stomping along with it.
