We’ve done stuff mostly live but then you do some overdubs, some vocals, or whatever. But we’re trying to do everything other than maybe strings live. There’s just something old and dirty about it.”  more info Mumford & Sons Announce North American Fall Tour British folk rockers Mumford & Sons will be hitting the road on a North American tour this fall and have scheduled one Wisconsin date.  The guys from London will be in Milwaukee on October 30 as well as Minneapolis the 29th and Chicago the 31st.  If you are unfamiliar with Mumford, I highly recommend their first album Sigh No More as well as checking them out this October.  For more information and the complete tour schedule, check here. Reese Witherspoon To Play Peggy Lee in New Film Actress Reese Witherspoon won an Oscar for her portrayal of country singer June Carter Cash in the Johnny Cash bio-pic "Walk the Line."  Her success with the musically important role has put her in position to play jazz singer/songwriter/actress Peggy Lee in an upcoming film based on the entertainer's life.  Witherspoon obtained the story from Lee's estate and will act as an executive producer for the film.  Additional details have yet to surface.  more info Arcade Fire Take Over The Daily Show Arcade Fire have been very busy the last couple weeks.  The band released their latest chart topping album The Suburbs this week, headlined last weekend's Lollapalooza and recently joined John Stewart on The Daily Show for a two song performance.  Check out video from their Daily Show performance below.
