Sorry for double post and this might sound kinda stupid but is this genre similar to like Mumford and Sons? That's kinda what I'm looking for. I do love folk though

Many people would contend that M & S is kindof a cheap bastardization of this sound...

In other news, have there been any John Fahey references yet?

Kinda sorta. They really write U2 lite pop tunes though, just with more "folk" instrumentation. If you want music similar to Mumford, Avett, Lumineers, etc. but much much better I'd try Trampled by Turtles or Old Crow Medicine Show.

As much as I love music, I'm kinda dumb when it comes to genres. There's just so many.

But thank you for those!

I kinda figured. I'm just in search to something along those lines but more like the actual genre. Within the last year or so I've grown to love stuff like this

It's all good; personally I hate trying to squeeze things into certain genres/microgenres so I completely understand.

Yeah, I think that's part of my problem too. I like everything so I kinda disregard genres. A lot of my friends ask me for recs according to artists they like and I'm just like "Uhhhhh..." lol

Oh also the first two Ryan Bingham albums are great. Not sure how "alt" his style of country is, though.

Since we're talking about alt-country... If you haven't listened to Cary Hudson/Blue Mountain, you're missing out.
