Following in the footsteps of Mumford and Sons and the Head and the Heart, this year’s hot alt-folk act looks like it will be Of Monsters and Men. Their debut album, My Head is an Animal has already breached the top ten of the US charts and it has been a top seller on Amazon ever since its release.
Oh, and was Iceland on your list of additional countries from yesterday? That’s where this sextet hails from. One thing about all these international acts: most of them sing in English even though I’m sure it’s not their native tongue. Although performing in a second language may not make music appreciably better, it is awfully impressive.
