The Civil Wars

Seeing as they are already Grammy award winning artists - I realize I am late to the party on this one - but I don't care, I'm just glad I'm here with my party pants on.

The Civil Wars are a music group that gets categorized as some sort of country / folk hybrid (although you couldn't tell from the picture above). I hate to compare artists because I feel like it robs them of their individuality, but if I had to, I would say The Civil Wars are a mash-up between The xx, The Lumineers, and Hang Dog Expression. Their last cd, Barton Hollow, is fantastic, and their self-titled follow-up is already pre-ordered on iTunes. Check 'em out after the jump.
