4. Mumford & Sons – The Cave
The dynamics of this song are equally matched to the incredible production value of which Mumford & Sons relentlessly adhere to. As much as I love how you can hear every individual note as clear as the others in this twangy mix, what gets me is how the song builds just so gradually… into that hope-filled chorus of endings, leaving you feeling like you’ve just gone somewhere. Pretty good use of brass instruments, too.
