Lest I be accused of being an old fogey because I find most current mainstream music to be lame compared to so much well-crafted music of the past, here's a newer song for today's Friday Musical Interlude.
Contrary to what you might think that I think, there are some really good and promising bands, musicians and singers around today. While they are fewer and farther between, they do exist. And the dearth of quality music of the last decade plus, has not be completely pervasive and even more importantly of late there has been a surprising uptick in the number of quality songs.
It doesn't hurt that songs like Stubborn Love by The Lumineers clearly have their inspirational roots in history much like other groups like Mumford & Sons. It's folksy but with an inescapable pop hook. Give it a listen.
