Republic Records took note and offered the band a record deal. Any doubts I had soon left when they came onto stage looking and sounding brilliant. Following their own world tour, the Lumineers were asked by U2 to join the North American leg of their Joshua Tree anniversary tour. And then I went into my bathroom and recorded it on my voicemail at 3 a.

Steady touring followed until the group returned to the studio to record a follow-up. Heartfelt, uncluttered performances of terrific songs? I would not hesitate to see them again.

The songs quickly gained recognition and a band was assembled to flesh them out in a live setting. But here, the character-driven vignettes—about the lonely new girl in town, Ophelia, and the Egyptian queen of the title—feature thoughtful, luxurious production. She is awesome and also very friendly, I had the chance to see her off stage getting food with every other festival go-er. Once a full band was recruited, they signed with Island Records in November. Their raw, primal imagery—tongues pulled and wolves ripping through flesh—only adds to the fire.

Icelandic rock band Of Monsters and Men broke onto the international music scene in the early 2010s with a rousing chamber pop sound that echoed Arcade Fire and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes. It was a really nice concert, the band consists of supertalented people and they put on a very nice show. The collective made a swift rise, winning their country's nationwide battle-of-the-bands competition, Musiktilraunir, just a year after they formed. This concert was really above all of my expectations! Tours and major festival appearances including Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Boston Calling, and Glastonbury followed, as did television appearances such as the U. Some may say their songs can get redundant with very similar sounding tunes but when you listen to them live at an outdoor festival, you can listen to them endlessly. They soon released their debut studio album in late 2011.

The band promoted the set well into 2016 before returning to the studio in 2017 for their third album. Ticketmaster's site was crashing when I got tickets so that was a two hour ordeal and we ended up getting an obstructed view.

But their subtler turns are where much of the beauty lies.

It begins, like many journeys do, with a broken heart. Set list was well organized and energizing. The companion Stinson Beach Sessions, a collection of unreleased demos from the making of Signs of Light, arrived the following year. By 2009 they'd become more serious and chosen to relocate to the unlikely musical hub of Denver, Colorado, where they met cellist and multi-instrumentalist Neyla Pekarek. Enjoying continued success, they moved from Sub Pop to Warner Bros.

Of Monsters and Men is one of my favorite bands and I went to their concert before. They didn't talk much in between songs, but they played exactly what the audience wanted. My girlfriend and I had a fantastic time. While the group's first two albums featured frontwoman Florence Welch posed in a theatrical side profile with her eyes closed, this one finds her eyes open and staring straight into the camera. The band played all of my favorite songs and a bunch of new ones too.
