mid-week music moment: Mumford & Sons

I'm tinkering around a bit with the format of the Mid-Week Music Moment posts, as you can see. I want to start the post with a nice big image when I can, because I think the YouTube video + text combination right off the bat sometimes ends up looking a bit wonky. I'm not particularly web-savvy (though God knows I probably should be at this point) but I really want to use a music player widget for the songs instead of a video. (As I was magically able to do somehow with this post.) If you have any hot tips, please let me know!

Anyway, this week's selection is from the much-anticipated (at least by me) new album, Babel, from Mumford & Sons, which comes out September 24th. This little gem, 'I Will Wait' was released a couple weeks ago, but I heard it for the first time while cruising down a country road in East Hampton this weekend. Serendipitous, right?

Ahhh, now wasn't that a treat? It's upbeat, romantic, summer-y and makes me so excited for their new album (which I almost just called a CD, by the way).

    do you use spotify? it's basically the best thing ever, and you can embed their player really easily to share single songs, playlists, etc.
