Comparisons to Mumford & Sons abound, especially with rustic party-anthem "Ho Hey"; both bands play in the same rootsy playground, and wash their sepia-tone sound with an indie aesthetic. But The Lumineers' kinship with wordsmiths such as Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen helps set them apart. Singer Wesley Schultz invokes shades of Dylan in both style and inflection on the lilting "Flowers in Your Hair," while "Slow It Down" does just that, with a sparse, haunting guitar accompanying Schultz's plaintive vocals, and "Big Parade" revs up the pace with simplistic rhythms, foot stomps and hand claps.
