Is ‘Delta’ the Dawn of a New Era for Mumford & Sons?

Aside from keyboardist Ben Lovett looking like a stereotypical ’70s drug dealer who hangs around the disco on Thursday night before trying his pick-up lines on the ladies, it sounds like British folk rockers Mumford & Sons have a promising new single from a promising new album titled ‘Delta.’

Personally, the band’s previous album ‘Wilder Mind’ was incredible. The guitars and drums were louder when they needed to be and more controlled when they needed to be for a memorable music collection. The lyrics were fantastic and the album’s sound has staying power. Interestingly, the new single “Guiding Light” doesn’t definitively reveal a new daring sound. Nor does it confirm a return to past songs by Mumford & Sons.

It’s just…good.

And on the 14-track album ‘Delta,’ there will be plenty for us to listen to while our mind wanders to something deeply personal, imaginative and–dare I write it–wilder than what we’re expecting from Mumford & Sons?

We’ll find out on November 16 when the new album drops.

Happy Monday!

Despite graduating from high school many, many years ago–well, the specific number of years isn’t important–there’s still this lingering feeling from time-to-time in which high school pops back into my life in some form or another. I think it’s fair to say it’s a universal feeling.

In some ways it’s good. And in some ways it’s bad.

If only we could travel back in time for a second chance at those prized opportunities missed…

(aside from the movie ’17 Again’ in which that is the literal plot)

I sense a recurring bit with these two funny people that will provide us with some great mini-sitcom moments like in the video above.

Kevin Hart’s new movie ‘Night School’ opens in a theater near you this Friday.

Have a Better Week Than Last Week. 

New Flight Mission: Possible

Yes, yes and YES.

A to-be-named ‘Top Gun’ sequel is officially happening. And, more importantly, this sequel is currently filming with stars of the original classic movie in Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer.

Just let that sink in for a moment because, for many of us, that 1986 action thrill-ride set in motion our perspective of Naval fighter pilots.

It’s just awesome that a sequel has been set in motion…

into the ‘danger zone.’

David Spade’s Comedic Audible

David Spade does not disappoint.

Whether in the ’90s or in the year 2018, comedian David Spade remains one of the funniest SNL alums doing stand-up today. Armed with a quick-hitting, witty sense of humor, the former ‘Weekend Update’ anchor continues to grab our attention with hilariously clever observations.

Some of his material seems like it’s been carefully constructed over a long period of time while other bits feel like naturally funny musings you’d hear if you were in the middle of a conversation with him.

Either way, David Spade is very funny.

And his humor can be funny within the time restraints of the Snapchat app or captured with a Polaroid camera.
