2012 EU issue on 180 LP-The Lumineers, a folk-rock trio out of Denver, Colorado, have a pretty interesting sound, an Americana mesh of folk, rock, and gospel that is similar in tone to the Waterboys, say, or an alt-folk version of Bob Dylan circa Desire, thanks in no small part to Neyla Pekarek's inventive cello.

The Lumineers, a folk-rock trio out of Denver, Colorado, have a pretty interesting sound, an Americana mesh of folk, rock, and gospel that is similar in tone to the Waterboys, say, or an alt-folk version of Bob Dylan circa Desire, thanks in no small part to Neyla Pekarek's inventive cello. And there are some very good tracks on this debut album, including the chamber honky tonk of "Dead Sea," the delightfully goofy but then ultimately sad and elegant "Submarines," and "Stubborn Love," which manages to be bright and chiming while also being haunting and mournful. Not everything here clicks together at that level, but each track is inventive, and when the songwriting and arrangements cross paths perfectly, as they do in the above songs, this is a delightful band.
=====
In 2011, an eponymous, self-recorded EP led to a tour, and before long the impressive trio known as the The Lumineers and their heart-swelling stomp-and-clap acoustic rock, classic pop, and front-porch folk started attracting devout fans, first across the Western US, then back in their old East Coast stomping grounds. 
 
Young, old and in-between, they’re drawn by songs like “Ho Hey” and “Stubborn Love,” Americana-inflected barn burners in the vein of the Avett Brothers and Mumford & Sons. They’re drawn by songs like “Slow It Down” and “Dead Sea,” slow, sultry ballads that suggest the raw revelations of Jeff Buckley and Ryan Adams. They’re drawn by the live Lumineers experience, a coming-together in musical solidarity against isolation, adversity and despair.
 
The roots revival of the last few years has primed listeners for a new generation of rustic, heart-on-your-sleeve music, the kind that nods to tradition while setting off into uncharted territory. The Lumineers walk that line with an unerring gift for timeless melodies and soul-stirring lyrics as displayed on this, their self-titled debut full-length album. Born out of sorrow, powered by passion, ripened by hard work, The Lumineers have found their sound when the world needs it most.
