Just wanted to do a quick post about some music I've been enjoying recently. I've been rediscovering my love for finding great new music, having been a bit lazy recently and mainly played older favourite albums.
While trying to stay awake in the early hours during a drive back from an event, I was tuned into Rob da Bank's show on Radio 1 a while back. He played some amazing new tunes, including the now Mercury prize winner Alt-J (∆) and Ben Howard. The song he played was The Wolves, which is one of my favourite tracks from the album, along with Old Pine and The Fear.
Ben Howard - The Wolves
I'm also a big fan of King Charles, who I've written about previously in a post about Truck Festival here. His song Ivory Road is particularly awesome. We were lucky enough to meet him at Truck after his set, when we had our faces painted as wild animals...
King Charles - Ivory Road
Mumford and Sons' new album is incredible as expected. I'm a huge fan and we've got tickets to see them at Portsmouth Guildhall in three weeks time - so excited! I'll do a post about that afterwards. It took them over three years to follow-up their debut album, but it was worth the wait. It's a little strange that they have rehashed some of the songs, including old B-side Untitled being sampled to become
and Learn Me Right [with Birdy, used on Disney's Brave soundtrack] adapted slightly to become Not With Haste. Despite this, they're both great new tracks and I can't fault anything about the album! Not With Haste is really beautiful, take a listen...
Mumford & Sons - Not With Haste
Finally, I'm absolutely kicking myself for only just discovering The Gaslight Anthem. Their most recent album "45" is brilliant; I've had the title song on repeat a lot! I've been listening through their back catalogue on Spotify and they really are awesome.

Can anyone please recommend me any excellent new or older music I should check out?
