Professional waistcoat wearers Mumford and Sons team up with Sengalese singer / guitarist Baaba Mal in this somewhat unexpected collaboration, recorded in Johannesburg with Sweden's Johan Hugo (AKA The Very Best). Expect the usual Mumford fare, but with some added African vocals which are nice.

I knew about this, but hadn't bothered with it. Then a couple of weeks ago, I briefly listened to it and I must say, I've been playing this a lot more than I expected, and for me this marks a nice change from their usual output. Mumford & Sons have changed their style a bit for this album, and the brilliant song Ngamila takes some African influences. The best is saved for last: the EP's closing (and longest) track is "Si Tu Veux", where we get treated to what feels like a song from a South African play of some sort.
