I get a message from Amber. It’s link to a YouTube video without explanation. We do this whenever there’s new music that we think the other must hear. So of course I click it and I end up with a Mumford & Sons video. I don’t like Mumford & Sons that much, but I trust Amber so I hit play.
The indie pretentiousness is thick in the few opening shots. Everything I dislike about Mumford & Sons is on display. Sun-dappled hipster darlings with instruments strewn about a field. Why is that guy wearing three instruments? What a dick. Wait, why is that guy shoving his piano down a dirt road? He looks ridiculous. Is that… wait, that’s Jason Bateman? And Ed Helms? And…
This is awesome.
