I don't know the original, but I really enjoyed this. There was passion in his tone.

Wouldn't say it's "ruined" or anything nearly that dramatic. I think it actually suits Mumford's voice. But it's an okay cover of a really great new band...that's all. Good for alt-J...Awesome Wave is fantastic and deserves to be heard by more people.

I was being hyperbolic, obviously. But do think it's a very bad cover, so boring and the instrumentation is very weak.

Pretty much why I posted it, been posting about them a fair bit the past few months and included them in the latest Absolute100, but even more exposure for them via this post is a winner. Check out their debut album, An Awesome Wave, it's fantastic.

Not bad by any means, but it's missing something.

I think this cover just made me realize once again how very good Alt-J and "Tesselate" are. Still, a decent cover (better than I was expecting, actually) but nothing that great.

Great, now everyone is going to think Alt J covers Mumford and Sons.

Yes, doing that now and enjoying it. I'll be checking out the Absolute 100 when I get a chance. Thanks!

I definitely don't object to this. Gotta give them props for covering such a great song.
