In listening to a new band and then turning friends on to them. Everyone likes the story of being on the ground floor before a band became popular. Whether its seeing Nirvana in the Showbox or the Doors at the Whiskey, those are great times.
Mumford is playing arenas now, so that means they are no longer being discovered. So for those that don't like them, it means that they are overrated.
I must admit, I haven't taken to any of the new folk bands that seem to be increasing in popularity.
Like you, I can't tell the difference. I just want John Davis to reappear on the music scene.
